Wordless Wednesday

 

I’ve got a lot going on right now.. like most parents and small business owners do, and I had a full on panic attack yesterday.  My blood pressure skyrocketed, my pulse was racing at over 110 bpm for hours and I didn’t know whether a green light meant stop or go for a little while there.  Don’t worry, I wasn’t driving.

Yesterday evening, the kids and I were at my mother’s house while I was in full on panic mode and I stepped outside to find my 5 year old daughter gracefully pulling seeds off of a butterfly weed my mother had given her to play with.  She spent about 30 minutes plucking the seeds off of this butterfly weed then she took them one by one to a spot in my mom’s yard and gently blew the seed off her hand.  It really was the most beautiful thing.

Just watching her do this for 30 minutes (I usually don’t sit still for that long) lowered my bp and pulse considerably and while I was thinking of 5 million things I ‘should have been doing’, I am so glad I just sat there with her and enjoyed the moment.
