A Day of Hustle, Bustle and Perspective

Sitting around the computer surrounded by bins and boxes of camping supplies. A list of tasks to be done, food to bake, items to pack. But the sun is shining and a little girl who loves flowers asked me to take her picture.

Everything else will manage to get done. But a little girl with a fistful of snowdrops, the breeze in her hair, and an impish little grin? A distraction I find to be nothing short of: worth-my-time.

Back after a bit, my friends. We're off to be happily distracted by one another.

  4. It's so easy to be over-driven by our to-do lists, isn't it? Lately I've been rather appalled to notice just how often I tell my kids, "Wait just a minute..."

    Worth your time, yes indeed!
