Her intentions were good.
She had set the two littlest (5 & 2) with activities they were happily engaged in.
The silence should have been a sign.
Not a good one.
Quietly. Very quietly....... 4 litres of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) was slipping itself carefully ALL over the floor, into every crevice. Being sucked up voraciously into the dry floor. The 2yo was just checking to see if I really was being as mindful as I could be.
Wheels were driving through it.
Hands were slipping through it.
And then........that mindful mother (even taking a few notes to remind myself of the really resonant parts....) only 10 minutes into the bliss of learning about how to give herself to the ones she loved ; came out to check on them only to discover that there was an oil spill of Exxon Valdes proportions quietly seeping into the wooden (THANKFULLY) floor.
|You can even see the tracks of the getaway vehicle!|
SO......... for today I feel as if mindless might just be how I roll.
I hope to watch the end tonight.
And then the more mindful me will return.
I am sure you will forgive my current state of mindlessness given the trying circumstances.
Here is the video I was trying to watch....I hope you can get all the way through!
Luckily I had already made batch of my all in the pot chicken soup when this happened or it would have been take away.
The recipe for my soup is here.
Here's a song that always takes me to a calm place and gives me strength at the same time.
