This is Peanut Butter Brickle. One thing I have learned since we started traveling is that we really don’t need a lot of space. In fact, if we didn’t move our house on wheels so much, the persons would fill what space we have with more stuff.
We moved to a different campground this weekend. And the campsites are just so big!
We are not used to that. It’s like you have one space for your house on wheels and one space for something else like a tent or a pawty or something. I don’t know.
And I thought about it and I felt a little guilty. Sometimes, our campsites are so close that we almost touch another RV! I wish we could take some of this space and give it to someone that is too close for comfort in some campsite now.
But isn’t life like that? Some people have a lot. Some people have nothing.
Some people have a lot of time. Like when you get older and no one comes to visit. Some people have too little time. Like when they are busy working a lot of jobs and trying to feed their families.
Nothing is balanced. Including the space of time we fill.
We all have the same amount of time in the day. And we can choose to use it the way we want. Are we saving space for the people and animals that mean the most to us in our lives? Or are we using their space for less important things?
Don’t take up too much space. Don’t get so busy and spread out your time that you don’t have room for anyone else.
And what if you have extra space and time after you’ve rearranged what is important?
There may be someone else waiting for a visit. Or a phone call. Love doesn’t take up much space. Find it.
