Can the world please slow down?

Life has been crazy lately. One of the things I’ve learned is that the world never stops and things continue to go on, even if you don’t! I just about killed myself last week with all the things I had to do, so this week I am taking the time to enjoy myself and to enjoy my kids. We’ve had some wonderful weather so my son and I have enjoyed wandering along some trails, observing nature, just enjoying ourselves while we keep a look out for snakes (always a good idea to keep an eye out for snakes, I could tell you some very scary Texas snake stories).

Twice a month I teach a class to 8-12 year olds. Our next activity is on being thankful, so I’ve been trying to get in the thankful mindset (So as to not be a total hypocrite. You know what they say, those who can’t do, teach). Last week I was anything but thankful, I was cranky, tired, in a ton of pain, and I just wanted the world to slow down a bit (or a lot) so that I could keep up. This week things are back to a more pleasant pace and I have been able to enjoy the many things I am thankful for. You have to take these moment when they come, because unfortunately the world will not slow down for those of us lagging behind!
