Sometimes you make an intentional choice to slow down the pace of life and sometimes the choice is made for you. Today the latter is true, a sick child is keeping us home. Although I hope she feels better soon, today we are going to take advantage of the circumstances. We are going to snuggle on the sofa, read more of the adventures of Stuart Little, share a video or two, or three..., get lost in the Christmas tree lights and take pleasure in the slower pace.
AND, so you don't get too idealistic of a picture, I will also be doing lots of laundry, wiping the house down with Lysol, and cleaning up... (some things are better left unsaid if you know what I mean!)
So its not all warm and cozies today, BUT in between all the other stuff I do plan on taking pleasure in the slower pace.
