Slow Dance


Merry Christmas to all! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family. My very wise Grandfather sent the following poem to me yesterday; and I wanted to share it with all. It reminded me that I needed to slow down, not try to accomplish too much, and to simply enjoy the holidays with my Loved one. I hope you get a chance to slow dance this year too! I look forward to sharing with you all of my pictures from our Christmas; and I am really looking forward to seeing yours as well! xoxo

Slow Dance
Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round? Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground? Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight? Or gazed at the sun into the fading night? You better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last. Do you run through each day on the fly? When you ask How are you? Do you hear the reply? When the day is done do you lie in your bed with the next hundred chores running through your head? You'd better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last. Ever told your child, We'll do it tomorrow? And in your haste, not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch, Let a good friendship die, cause you never had time to call and say,'Hi?' You'd better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last.. When you run so fast to get somewhere, you miss half the fun of getting there. When you worry and hurry through your day, it is like an unopened gift....Thrown away. Life is not a race. Do take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over. (Written by a child living with cancer)
