Life's short, make it count.
I don't want to forget the little stuff, but I do. I'm too consumed with grocery lists, library book due dates, and dow jones numbers.
My head is only so big and yet I try to cram as much as possible into it. Sometimes the really important stuff gets smushed out.
I'm so glad I have friends to help me refocus.
My super artistic friend gave this to me today. This is a picture of Darcy. What I love most about this picture is that my friend took the time to capture the details. She drew the mountains, which I didn't even realize she noticed. She drew Darcy's tennis ball which one of Darcy's favorite things. She even drew Darcy purple collar and silver dog tag. Did I mention my friend is 2 years old!
She's super talented. Watch out Rembrandt.
My little artist's portrait reminded me to take time for the small details. I don't want to rush through life with a grocery list and bills in my hand. No,I want to remember what color the mountains look at sunset. I want to remember the moment between moments.
"She treasured these things in her heart."-Luke 2:19
Side note: This portrait is now hanging over Darcy's bed.
