It’s time for another link up with the Gypsy Mama. Friday is a time when we “write not worrying if everything is just right” If you would like to join in the fun Click Here.
Last night as my son and I headed off to his Christmas program at school, he caught a glimpse of our neighbor’s Christmas lights through the winter trees.
“Mom, can we drive real slow around the block and look at the lights before we leave?”
We oohed and awed at the bright and shiny colors all around our neighborhood loop. And, as we turned to head off to school, my son spotted another one. This house was far more colorful and much more decorated than any of the previous houses.
“Mom, look…the jackpot!”
And, of course, this one deserved our biggest and most enthusiastic OOH.
My son’s request to drive real slow around the block reminded me of how important it is to do this. The month of December often has a rushed feel to it. We hurry to this event and then hurry to that event. And, in the hurry, we forget. We forget to drive real slow. We forget to open our eyes and breathe it in.
