This weekend was fabulous and full of everything except rest. Both of our kids were in a show that ran Thursday through Sunday and with Sunday night being their cast party, there was no space for our family meal.
Instead, all four of us got blankets and mugs of hot tea and sat outside around the fire table.
As much as the pace of life has slowed down for me, it’s still going too fast. This intention to slow down as a family, even if it is just one hour a week, is giving me a chance to capture those moments I don’t want to miss.
Of course, I will miss them. Soon.
But I am not missing them today, that’s the difference.
