I’ll share mine if you’ll share yours…

My natural instincts are to rush, cram, and just get through the dealings of my day.

But one thing I’ve learned about being Mom to a medically fragile child with special needs, is that slower is often better.

Especially after the week from hell we’ve just been through.

Quite the realization for a text book diagnosis of  Type A personality.

And, boy, do I wish I had figured it out sooner.

We all have little things that make our lives better.

Simple things, most that don’t cost a dime,  add richness to our everyday living.

I’ll share mine with you, if you’ll share yours with me.
