Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with responsibilities.
And a lot of times they are self-imposed.
I signed up for these classes, these tasks, these relationships.
Sometimes it feels like the room is getting smaller and time is going faster and I haven't seen, and I mean really seen, the stars or felt the wind in my hair and all I have time for is a shower and barely remember to feed Duke and put the chooks to bed.
So, when time seems to slow.
When I get to take in the beauty of a moment, slowly with intention,
like sunset's colors spilling into your kitchen, calling you outside,
like a lull in conversation where you and your company are fully enjoying the sound of the fire,
like the smell of smoke lingering, reminding you of the summers of youth.
Filled with joy and thankfulness and gratitude and feel refreshed.
