Slow down, you move too fast----You got to make the morning last.
I was lucky enough to get to stop by Target after work today. It was one of my favorite types of shopping, picking up all sorts of items that don't go together. You know, Drano, socks, Kleenex, 100 calorie Cheezits. I had a bunch of different items in my buggy. A nice young lady was behind me and only had a cd to purchase, so I let her go ahead of me. No big deal, we've all done it before.
As I left the store I thought about how easy that action was to do, and about how much easier life is when we just slow down a bit. We are all in such a hurry. We rush to and from work. We work as quickly as we can to complete our tasks. We rush through grocery shopping, driving, even meals.
We're missing all the little things.
Accidents are happening because folks are changing lanes trying to gain the advantage.
We're missing out on smiles and giggles with friends, because we're focused on getting to the next activity.
We're ignoring those in need and forgetting to shower love on those most important to us.
I'm gonna slow down folks. I'm happy to wait in line a few extra minutes.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin'
