'Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.'
You've probably all heard/read this before. I have no idea where it's from but it is a great saying.
I'm trying to slow down this week to recognize all the things around me that would take my breath away if I was to just take the time to notice them.
But as I'm writing this I can hear my daughters upstairs bickering over a shower towel. Yes, a towel.
And it has just occurred to me that the moment that might take my breath away right now would be them uh, sleeping.
Quiet and sleeping.
