A Random Post About Circles

I’ve been thinking about circles lately. The way my life is full of them and what they represent, especially as a parent. In Judaism, the bagel symbolize the eternal cycle of life - and I guess eating one of them recently set me off on this trajectory of cataloging some of the circles in my life. Here are just a few:

  • Looping from room to room picking up Legos, socks, and other random stuff and them depositing wherever they supposed to be.
  • Hugs and more hugs.
  • My circle of Mom friends, so essential to my sanity.
  • The sparkling three rings I wear on my ring finger – marking our engagement, our wedding and our five year anniversary.
  • My Google+ Circles – not that I am using them much.
  • The daily drive to preschool, school, to the office and then back all over again.
  • The endless laundry – from hamper to washer to drier to closet to hamper to washer to drier to closet to hamper …
  • Holding hands around the dinner table on a Sunday when we each say what we are thankful for.
  • Target.
  • Waffles, pancakes, pizza, crackers, cookies – and of course, bagels!

Coming next, the impact of rhomboids on my life.

Just kidding.

Really.

  1. Good to remember to think of all those things as part of the circle of life and imbue them all with as much love as we can. Especially the Legos part. :)

  2. I like the references in the list. The bagel made me hungry – looks tasty.
