A couple of weeks ago, we had a crazy week - every day was super busy with to-do's and to-go's and it was really just survival mode.
I came home Thursday evening and we were leaving the next morning for Colorado and I'd done absolutely nothing to prepare. We had some fresh veggies we needed to eat before leaving town and I was making roasted oven potatoes and carrots and a big cast iron skillet of stir fry green beans and onions. Mmmm.
Anyway, while standing at the stove stirring, I realized how little beauty I had found that week and that I had not picked my camera up once. I had a very clear thought - hurry and busy are the enemy of slow and chasing after beauty. It is impossible for all of those things to coexist peacefully.
I'm just admitting right now, there was no Slow Day that week and yes, that is how life is sometimes. But, we do pay a price for this kind of hustle bustle. I felt like some sort of machine just trying to get through the day, be friendly, serve some kind of meal and fall into bed to repeat the next day. My heart and soul were made for so much more, friends. Can you relate?
I love this song and it ties in with the above - so I'll leave you with this:
