Once Upon a Time

Do you ever hurry...through your day, a meal, a chore? I have. Wouldn't it be better to absorb each moment for what it is without thinking of all the things you have to do. Savor the moment. Live in the moment. Forget the shortcuts.
I have been guilty of taking short cuts, of not living in the moment. It's easy to get distracted. Life is full of distractions that keep us from truly living in the moment.
My grandson wanted me to tell him a story. I started the fairy tale, "The first little pig built his house out of straw."
"No, Mamaw, that's not how it starts. Start at the beginning, 'Once upon a time.'"
They know when we take shortcuts.

So true! At this point in my life I would love to slow down, enjoy my crafting a little more.
