Too Much on Your Plate?

Leave a comment

I’ve been told for several years now that have too much on my “plate”… Or that I have too many plates spinning… And without a doubt… I do!!!

After rushing back home after a funeral only to rush back out to a women’s Christmas gathering, (after feeding the family of course)…
This is what happened…


My appetizer landed on the floor! I won’t pretend no F bombs went off… Because they did! And my blood pressure from the stress of my current situation went through the roof! But I was able to Walk Away… And an angel cleaned up my mess for me…

I couldn’t help but wonder about the metaphor of the situation at hand… A plate overloaded comes “Crashing Down”… Leaving a mess for others to cleanup. I was fortunate enough to have “Santa’s Helper” around to help me clean up my mess. But with most situations we get ourselves into, we are left to clean up our own messes alone!

Life and all we are expected to handle gets way out of control on many occasions. I believe in todays world and its fast pace technology everything is just getting more and more out of control!
We are moving at a faster speed than over before and yet we still can’t keep up!

With all our modern convinces we are suppose to have more time on our hands right? I believe we have a lot less time to enjoy what’s really important… And sometimes that’s as simple as just being present to the moment and breathing in and out!

As the crockpot filled with freshly cook sausage and homemade (ok jarred) sauce went flying out of my hands (in slow motion I might add) I couldn’t help but be present to my ahh moment of… Enough is enough!!!

I made my party, enjoyed the women present, and even had a hearty laugh sharing the picture of my appetizer that never made it…. Most importantly… I learned a few very important lessons…
It’s time to stop and be still…
It’s time to remove things off my plate…
It’s time to set my priorities…
It’s time breathe and be present to this beautiful holiday season… And continue to give thanks!


I am thankful I have a home, money to buy food, electricity to cook an appetizer, loved ones to help clean up and people I can call my friends…
What a blessing!
