Don’t Rush

Though the tree has been put away a month ago, and the Christmas lights stored, and the stockings packed in their boxes with care, it seems as if winter should be over…or nearing it’s end at least. That spring should be peaking it’s head out from behind the trees for longer and longer periods of time until we finally catch it and yell “I found it!”

But really, we still have three very full months of winter left. And I find myself sometimes wanting to rush through the rest of the snowy days and cold mornings. Hurry up the days and months until spring…or mud season as we call it in the mountians. Hurry and rush and rush and hurry to get the days that I want right now.

But I am a rushish/hurryish type of person anyway. I know what I want and I figure out how to get it, and then I simply do it. But most times I realize that unlike making myself an iced mocha whenever I want, there are certain things that simply cannot be hurried along…nor should they be.

They come like slowly ticking clocks and flipping calendar months.

One day at a time.

One moment.

One breath after another.

And time is one of those mysterious things in life. A piece that we easily sigh and tap our feet at to “hurry up already,” as well as a piece that looks at your now 8-year-old and wonder “why did it happen so fast?”

Some days seem to last forever while others seem to strike out like a stray spark.

And as a rush-rush, hurry-hurry person like myself who does have things to get done and is always excited for the next thing to happen, I find I have to slow down and stop cause most likely that next thing to happen, is happening right now.
