“Never be so busy as not to think of others.” Mother Teresa
I am busy. Busy packing up to move into our new house this week. Busy planning and studying for our first day of Challenge A in two weeks. Busy organizing papers and books. Busy running errands all over town and fulfilling promises I keep making without thinking. Busy cooking and cleaning in between and taking care of all the beautiful people who depend on me.
In all of the busy I don't want to loose sight of the heart of life, the joy of life. It can be so easy to just get caught up in all of the moving and get motion sickness. I get it easy so it is a real struggle for me, to stay balanced and not forget the people in my life and the suffering of people around the world. My world becomes so small that only I can fit in it and who wants to live in such a crowded egocentric world??
I don't want to forget what life if really all about just because I am busy, we are never to busy to love.
Today as I move forward in more than one way I pray that my heart stays still in the art of caring and thinking of others around me. I earnestly pray that in all my busy-ness I am not to busy to think of others.
