We tend to rush through our days, particularly those tasks that are mundane and we know how to do with little thought.
The last couple of weeks at the kennel has been insanely busy. I was reminded to slow down.
By a giant paw on my foot:
What Maggie really wants is love. She is the Velcro type of dog that always has to have some part of her touching you, either by leaning on your legs so you can't move or stepping on your foot.
It is a reminder I needed. Part of the fun of this job is petting the dogs and seeing the wag of their tails. In fact, sometimes that is the ONLY fun there is!
It's made me wonder how much other important moments I miss by not slowing down and enjoying the quiet easy moments. And how can I hear God's still voice if I'm making a racket?
What about you? What lessons have you learned by keeping a slower pace?
