One Day…

One day.

One day I will have my house in perfect order.

One day my body will be what it was before children. And before my 40’s.

One day I won’t have to worry about my children. Their happiness. Who their friends are. Where they are. How they’ll handle situations. Who they’ll become. (HA.)

One day the grass will be freshly cut, all the laundry will be clean, folded and put away. The house will be sparkling clean, dinner ready, mundane tasks accomplished all at the same time.  

One day all of my work will be caught up.

One day I won’t worry about all of the things that I’m worrying about today.

One day.

 

Some days seem like a monumental struggle.

Some days seem to suck every ounce of my being.

Then I wake up and am blessed with a fresh start.

The beginning of a new day.

There are magnificent days.

Horrific days.

Memorable days.

Forgettable days.

Busy days.

Boring days.

Sunny days.

Blustery days.

Ho-hum days.

SCREAM OUT LOUD days.

Inspire days.

Desire days.

Jump-for-joy-days.

How-in-the-world-am-I-going-to-get-through them days.

And then the other day something wonderful happened smack-dab in the middle of a not-so-fabulous day.

And my not-so-fabulous day turned into a truly-fantabulous day.

But today, I realized something…

that my “one day” is actually  “this day”.

Each one day, or some day, bad day or good day, eventually…

cumulatively…

becomes the “one days” that make my life.

It always amazes me what a monumental difference a day can make and what a monumental difference you can make in one day.  

Embrace the day.

    sorry to post again, but I just read your About section and almost freaked out. I am a Wendy Lee as well. And in school kids called me Wenderly.

    This is such a thoughtful post, Wendy. And you’re so right – our lives are filled with a whole bunch of “one day”s, but the trick is to embrace the one day that is happening now, whether than waiting for “someday” down the road. Love you!

    Well, you have me a little teary over here, Miss Wendy. I love the way you look at life. ♥

    “One day” I hope we can meet again in real life!

    You have a wonderful way with words and I always love your outlook on life. I have had one of the most challenging weeks with my 16 year old son and this post really struck me. Thanks for sharing.

    I agree with Bridget, I’m getting teary.
    I just finished reading another blog about the same subject.
    I think the start of a new year make people take a good long look at their lives and what they really
    want to do with them.
    Good job!

    Beautiful, just like you. I’m so thankful for your friendship and that you always make me think and remember the important stuff.

    So true, and so simple, isn’t it? I’m always amazed at the time I spend thinking or hoping for “one day” instead of living for “today”. This is such a good reminder.

    This one gets me “One day I won’t worry about all of the things that I’m worrying about today.” I need to start living in the now and not wait for that elusive day.
