6:45 p.m. and we're finally home. While putting the bikes away and trying to figure out what to make for dinner, I heard a voice: "Hey Winnie, look at the sky!" It was neighbor Pat. My immediate thought was: "ugh, I don't really have time for this." It's almost 7:00 p.m. and I hadn't made dinner. I managed to force a smile, turned around, then walked towards Pat and said, "Hi, what did you say?"
"Look at the sky. It's beautiful tonight." Pat replied.
I looked up and sure enough it was beautiful. I took a deep breath, smiled, and thanked Pat for pointing that out. I realized at that moment how much I needed to slow down. I was so lost in the day-to-day madness and forgot to "smell the roses."
