PLAY TIME

play time | shorts and longs | 3Hi friends! It’s spring break here this week, for R-kids at least, and just in time. Last week was a bit stressful on all accounts and we folks around here could sure use a nice, old-fashioned break.

Yesterday I was listening to one of my favorite speakers and he was teaching on this super-sophisticated spiritual practice that he recommends we all incorporate into our everyday lives.

He talked about how this discipline is crucial for our bodies, our minds, and  – especially – our souls.

He called it….

play.

I think the definition he gave was something like, “purposeless, all-encompassing fun.”

Hmmmmm.

Well if that’s the case, then I guess R-kids and I have some happy souls right now because we’ve been doing a lot of playing the past couple of days.

A late-night showing of the Hunger Games. (loved, loved, loved it!! will be seeing it at least one more time!)

Some favorite stores at the mall. (wow I was having major high school flashbacks in this one…)

A couple yummy meals out.
A game of private pinball on the restaurant table.

Ping pong.
Bowling.
Xbox.

And roller coaster after roller coaster at MOA, leaving me gasping for air from laughing and screaming so hard. Mid-roller-coaster ride, R-boy called me “Grandma” for all my screeching. Ha. He doesn’t realize what Grandma would actually be doing if she were on that ride.

Anyway, our goal this week is: purposeless, all-encompassing fun. As much as possible.
