My husband and I were talking about the need to “slow down.” Couples are all so busy and stressed that they miss many opportunities to connect and enjoy each other. We all miss so many of the joys of life.
So today, in the interest of slowing down, I pulled out a chair and sat and visited with my husband while he cleared some grass out from around the raspberry plants. It was really very lovely. It was a sunny day with a cool breeze. We talked about the garden, about some work responsibilities, and just general chatter. I helped with clean up and then we went back to work (we work from home). It’s amazing how much more relaxed I felt and how well we connected with each other the rest of the day.
I encourage y’all to slow down. The laundry and dust bunnies will still be there, but the moments to share with your husband, family and friends can be lost to the passage of time. Enjoy them now.
Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Carl Sandburg
