It is 10:30 on a Wednesday morning...and I am still in my robe. Though it's spring break, I've been working 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. the past couple of days doing floors at the school, and I decided to be a bum this morning and sleep in. The last few weeks have been exhausting and harried..... and I feel like I'm always on my way to somewhere else.
Life has a way of rushing us along its path; our calendars filled to the brim, always on the move. I try to observe along the way and take breaks for small moments that can add beauty and solace to each day. I've found that if we don't make those times for ourselves, no one else will schedule them for us.
Today while you're looking both ways before you run across the street, notice the flowers on the corner, the sweet little girl in her father's arms, the feel of the sunshine on your back, the smells from the bakery, the smile on another's face. While you're living this life, don't forget to stop every once in awhile and really enjoy it.
