It is getting warmer out. The days are growing longer. It is a time when we like to have all the windows open. I like to listen to the birds carry on outside my window while I work.
Today it’s the laundry that needs doing and later I have decided to make a cake for tea time.
These days I am finding the work to be a good place to get lost. There is so much to life that can overwhelm us. The world can be loud and harsh. This work might seem less important.
But I believe it is now more important than ever. The time spent caring for our homes helps to bring order to our lives which can give us a sense of calmness. The fruit of this work is often tangible. We can see the effort in the clean laundry at the end of the day, the meal cooked and the stack of clean dishes or the pantry stocked. In all these things, there is much to be thankful for.
Noticing them, and remaining in a posture of gratitude adds to this calmness even if we can only have peace within our own walls.
Work is often looked at in a bad light. But most of us know that anything worth having or doing requires hard work.
Could there possibly be meditative qualities to this form of work? There is the movement of our hands that labor toward the creation of clean and suitable living spaces. The ordinary sounds of life that accompany the work involved in creating aspects of daily beauty. All of it done in earnest and possessing meditative characteristics.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed your visit here and that it brought you a sense of peace and homemaking inspiration.
