My world is slowing down. Intentionally I have less on my calendar because I can do less now. We are staying home more, but there are always things to get done.

I'm tired, but life seems to be more vivid, at least this week.  The boys in my life, loud, wild, fast, crazy.  Vivid is a good word to describe them!

Outside everything is white, the reflections more vivid.  More so now than the other day when I was wishing for snow!

When you slow down you have time to see things more clearly, time to really see with focus and clarity.

"They" all say that you'll wish you'd enjoyed these days more.  I suppose it's true, but that doesn't always make them any easier.

Whatever the outcome, I do want to have vivid memories of these days.  I'm doing just that.

  1. The slowing down ... a thought close to my heart!
    Lovely post!

  2. Intentional living. Slowing down to enjoy the important, not the urgent. So much wisdom and joy to be found there!

  3. What a beautiful photo. I could use a little snow here. Or maybe I should just work a flight to Seattle. :-)
