list 3 : perfect day

February 4, 2013

Well it’s time for Book of Lists, and the topic is “perfect day.”


I chose this topic a month ago when I was anticipating my birthday (which is tomorrow) but now it just seems ironic since I’ve had such a difficult start to the week. My heart is heavy because my beloved uncle, my dad’s twin, passed away yesterday. He was sick and it wasn’t entirely surprising, but he took a downward turn very quickly that we didn’t expect. I have so many thoughts and feelings but mainly I’m sad. Just going through the motions with things for now, so to occupy myself for a short while I made my list to reflect my ideal perfect day.


sleep in

70 degrees & sunny

M is happy & well behaved

My whole family is healthy

No work

A few hours of alone time

Some kind of treat

Fun family time

Able to relax with David before bed


I can think of so many different “perfect days,” but no matter what I would want to be rested, everyone healthy, and have time alone (to recharge), time with family, and time with David. Great weather and a little extra treat – whether that be ice cream, a pedicure, or finding a great deal shopping – would make it that much better.

Well it’s been nice to dream about days like that even if I’m not currently feeling it. In the midst of all this I know God is watching over my family and I am praying it will bring us closer together and closer to Him.

Next month: We’ll be posting on March 4 and the topic is “I’m good at.” We can all stand to have a little more self-confidence, I think, so let’s talk about it.
