still life

the pause.
the freeze frame.
that weird week between
christmas and new years
(until schedules resume!)
Pinned Image
where real time ceases to exist.
if you follow any blogs
then you have surely read about
this anomaly.
or spoke with a friend.
each has their unique take on it.
for some it is a glorious
break from pace
others feel a little lost
wandering aimlessly
some may find it expresses itself
as a continuation
of the previous month...
filled with more malls
more food
finding it hard to
each year seems to yield a vastly
different feel for me
none stranger than this
it is reflected in those around me
feeling a little numb
finding we have successfully
exchanged our days
for nights
nights for days
can't wait to see how this
effects our school time
our meals have taken
on a time of their own
breakfast at noon
(if we're up by then)
lunch around 3:30
dinner at 9
i could look at it and say
 we are eating
when we're hungry
a good thing
i know...
i'm digging deep for that one.
the only days i can relate to these
are back when we first had
our babies
and my hubby would come
home and i would
proudly announce
i got a shower in today!
and that would be my greatest accomplishment
and somehow
it was enough
i will glean from that experience
we have seen our way
through some tough times
happy holidays
i will no longer ponder
 the why of this break we're taking
i will be gentle
i will lift a prayer of thanks
for a time well deserved
for this warm
outflowing of 
and strength
for the granting of
still life.
