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 ofÂ 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,Â add richness to our everyday living.
I’ll share mine with you, if you’ll share yours with me.
