Don’t we talk about this every year- the forgetting to slow and dwell and be grateful? Do we never learn? Never remember?
Maybe that is why we have thanksgiving every year instead of every big numbered anniversary (like the 400th year the pilgrims landed). Think about it.
In the daily list and media fed frenzy, I forget.
I forget to dwell.
I forget to enjoy the kiddos we have in our home while they are here.
I forget how precious the time the kiddos and I have together is.
So when I remember I slow down; restart. Remember to dwell with them. Live, laugh, read the same book over and over changing to a British accent because I cannot stand to listen to my own voice saying the same words over again.
I don’t dwell on my mistake of forgetting. That would be wasting the time I’ve been given to love them while they dwell in my life.
