We rush through our days, convincing ourselves we have important things to do, important places to go, important tasks to accomplish. But what about the
little not-so-little-things right here, right now?
Have you noticed how we rush things? The other day hubby and I stopped in at the local home store to pick up a part and what I saw stopped me in my tracks. Racks of Halloween decorations, right up next to aisles full of Christmas wreaths and trees and trimmings, with a sprinkling of Thanksgiving decor squeezed in between.
Really? Let me savor THIS season, please!
This weekend I chose to savor the moments with my family. We spoiled grandkids, played games with our big kids, watched our younger children enjoy visits with their grown up siblings, enjoyed an impromptu touch football game on the front lawn. These are the things memories are made of – the everyday, not-always-glamorous things.
I’m putting on blinders, choosing not to see the visions being forced on us by the world, making memories, spoiling the grandchildren, playing games, enjoying one another. Right now, the season I’m in. This, in real life, is how I want to live.
Thanks for the visit. You’ll find all my I.R.L. visits by clicking on the coffee cup.
