Taking time out
07 December 2010
It's so easy to get caught up in just being busy with day to day 'chores', don't you think. One day blends into another, the weeks rush by. We made a spur of the moment decision to go beach exploring in the weekend. There were chores to do, the lawns needed mowing, they're still un-mown, but they can wait till next week now. Aaron calls it making memories. If we'd stayed at home we would have had a cleaner house, and tidy lawns, but that passage of time would have passed and been forgotten quickly. Instead we have memories now that may always be there, of our first visit to a new beach, big high slightly scarey stairs, fresh sea air, treasures being found, blue starfish, splashing in sea puddles, splashing waves, running in the sand, an excited dog running too, wet clothes, sandy feet, time together.
Perhaps this week, just once even, put aside your 'chore' and instead turn that small piece of time into something that you will remember.
