Ease The Day

Don't you find that some days are better eased than seized?
I know seize the day...a wonderful mantra for sure...
but sometimes, some days....need to be eased.

  1. 1.
    absence of difficulty or effort.

    synonyms:effortlessness, no trouble, simplicityMore

  1. 1.
    make (something unpleasant, painful, or intense) less serious or severe.
    "a huge road-building program to ease congestion"

  2. 2.
    move carefully, gradually, or gently.
    "I eased down the slope with care"

That was the case for me last week, eldest daughter had had an injury at her work...not major but enough that it required concern)
Second daughter came home from school in Toronto to have oral surgery to remove her wisdom teeth...
Although none of it was huge it required an easing as opposed to seizing...
got me thinking.....
"ease the day'" like it....
listen, care, share feel, wonder,understand,give, quiet, pray.

All ways I can ease the day.......

and a Happy Birthday to my Brittany today!  (in front with glasses) This photo is from last year..

busy making supper today to bring to her house....

it has been a rainy Monday, but the sun is beginning to shine!


  1. Lucy, What a lovely thought about how to 'ease the day'.

    There are certainly times for seizing the day's opportunities, but those quieter, less hectic days are so luxurious to experience. And even when they are hectic, it's nice to think that we still don't have to rush into 'urgent' mode, but to keep our thoughts peaceful and steady, being mindful of the experiences and moments.

    Wishing you a beautiful day!

  2. Happy Birthday to your Brittany! What a delightful cake, and I hope she had a very special day. I'm so sorry to hear about the injury at work and the oral surgery. I would much prefer 'ease the day' than 'seize the day', that's for sure.

    Take care, Lucy.

    love, ~Sheri

  3. Lucy, I love this idea of "easing" the day...what a lovely concept! Sometimes that's the best for us to do when our loved ones experience bumps in the road. Hope that all is well before long...

  4. Happy Birthday to Brittany!

    Lucy, your pondering of 'ease' is very plEASing! Yes, you had some challenges that needed attention, care, love, and support, and I'm so glad all is well. Enjoy your girls, my friend!!
