Can you feel it? The pace that wants to quicken, the days that want to fly by, the moments slipping through our fingers? This time of year the focus can easily slip into that of hustle and bustle … and I am fighting against it with every thing I have. The more the outside world wants to speed up, to shout loudly, the more I want to slow down, to whisper.
Recent events have driven home how fragile life is, haven’t they, friends? Things can change so much from Christmas to Christmas. I’m reminded again and again how much joy there is under my roof and how very lucky I am to have it. I want to live in these moments, paying attention, and savoring them.
