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.


  1. it would be impossible to resist those eyelashes!! Be glad she loves to have you take her picture!! You are good mama!!

  2. And what a lovely photo you took! Definitely worth your time :)

  3. What a sweet picture! Hope you are enjoying your spring break.

  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!
