I thought this was such a lovely quote (both visually appealing and inspirational).
One of my favorite things to do (beyond writing) is to dabble in something creative. Whether it is photography, graphics, crafts, sewing, decorating, or baking – I absolutely love to do things that are creative.
On the flip side of that, I know I can’t spend all my time playing around and having fun. There are so many things that must be done (like dishes and laundry and *shudders* ironing) that aren’t particularly things I enjoy. Despite how much I’d rather not do them, they are necessary and important and vital.
Often, while I’m doing those things that don’t rank high on my list of favorite things to do, I allow my thoughts to wander. In those moments when my hands are busy with everyday work, my mind can still reach out creatively, searching for ideas and answers to questions I may not yet have given a voice.
Even in the most mundane activities, there is the gift of grace.
