When Play Trumped Work
Today was one of those days where I felt slammed. I was behind at work, I had a sick kid, I had taken on waaaaaay too many volunteer projects and needed to fulfill the commitments I made to people. I felt like the entire world was waiting for me to finish things that I hadn’t yet started, and I had NO time to accomplish any of them.
And then… A sweet faced toddler crawled up into my lap and ask me to read a book. So that is exactly what I did.
Now here I am, 15 hours since waking up feeling like I had SO much to do. I still have just as much to do, but I don’t care that I’m not getting it done.
