Lately we’ve had heat and rain, cool days and warmer ones, which equate to the grass in my backyard growing at an extraordinary rapid rate. Today, finally, I had a chance to get out there and mow it.
But it’s not just the grass that is growing at a crazy rate. My oldest kid will be 18 in two months, my youngest is 15. Life seems to be speeding by. It’s already February. And still the grass grows. But I’m thankful. For the sun, the rain which nourishes and yes, even the grass that will grow again. After all, without growth we would have no life.
And neither would our three little relaxed guinea pigs. The furry trio enjoyed a huge batch of greenery in their hutch today before it was mowed down.
Maybe I should take a leaf out of their book.
I rush too much. From here to there trying to get things done. And what happens? Well, see my hideous nail below? This is what happened when I slammed my thumb in my car door. That was over three months ago. I have never experienced such pain. Ever. I saw stars. Now that’s a lesson for me to slow down and be more mindful.
Mundane Monday Challenge #45 is hosted by Jithin at PhoTrablogger, celebrating the the ordinary and the every day, a the beginning of each week. This is a challenge created to find beauty in almost everything …capture the beauty and upload the photographs.
As we go about our new week, may we try and slow down to enjoy and appreciate what’s right under our noses.
May we savor the grass under our feet, the sky above us and all that comes our way.
Happy Monday everyone.
