elastic schedules

Stretching to fit in so many important things this fall
Remembering there's no prize for the fullest schedule
Remembering that saying yes to one thing means saying no to something else
Plenty of time for parties and picking fruit, playgrounds and school projects
Crazy busy is a tempting armor
but we shouldn't be so far out in front of life that the truth of how we're feeling, what we really need, can't catch up with us
Huddling close and holding hands, taking walks and taking naps and trying to make it all easier for one another when we can
