A Single Peach Seed

It’s late – 12:54 a.m. to be exact – and I’m reluctant to post a blog. My head is pounding, vision is blurred, ear aches, and my complaints can fill this page in no time! But, I’ll stop right there and save you from being bored with such nonsense. 🙂 So, on a positive note, I’ve been working on a poncho to wear for the fall season. The base color is a sunflower yellow, with pumpkin orange, beige, and brown accents. My inspiration for the colors was the sunset and the color of fall leaves. (Will post photos soon!) I truly LOVE the fall season! It brings back soo many happy childhood memories… I digress…

Nonetheless, I’ve been missing my poncho project for the past couple of days. I didn’t get to work on it earlier and became frustrated because my crochet time had been stripped of me. Again, I attempted to work on it right before I began typing this post, but my attempt proved fruitless. I’m not feeling well and wanted a chance to unwind. Is that too much to ask?!

So, my Son (who magically decided to nap earlier in the day – he NEVER naps) is now bright-eyed and bushy tailed. He asked Ray and I to play with him (for the 100th time today! I know, it’s all worthwhile, it really is.) and we did. Some moments later, he’s eating a peach and tells me, “Look Mommy. There’s a seed in this peach for you to plant. I’m going to eat the fruit part and give you the seed when I’m done.” My heart melted and my eyes began to tear up. How selfish of me to want to sit down to crochet my poncho when my 3 year-old Son acted selflessly by thinking of how much I enjoy planting seeds and watching them grow!

Point being – sometimes we have to drop everything, do for others, think of others, and most of all, SPEND QUALITY TIME WITH THOSE WE LOVE MOST. Our time on Earth is not promised. Make the most of each and every second, of each and every day.
