So, it's a Saturday in August, 9:31am, and I am still in my PJ's. That hasn't happened in like 4 years. My main camera body malfunctioned yesterday and I had to send it in to be serviced. And while I do have a back-up camera, I didn't realize until yesterday (in the middle of a shoot!) how much I disliked using it. So I have rescheduled the shoot for today and the magazine shoot for Sunday and am waiting for my rental to come in on Tuesday to get ready for the 5 shoots I have at the end of the week. Wow. I was a basket case yesterday. Cried for much of the afternoon about my camera and a small situation at my kid's school. But this morning, all I am is thankful. I have a little mini vacation that I never dreamed of. I have time to work on pendants and read and maybe clean a little bit. I have a nice block of time to get in a long run. I have space in my head to dream a bit. And maybe paint. And walk to Starbucks with the kids. And breathe deeply.
Yesterday, I was crumbling. But today I can see all the problems more clearly and see them as the gift that they are.
