SAVOR: What is All That Hurrying About?


I don't want to hurry it.  That itself is a poisonous twentieth century attitude.  When you want to hurry something, that means you no longer care about it and want to get on to other things.

I remember a time when our family had to work together to handle even the simplest of tacks. 

 Homework, dinner, doctor's appointments which all used to fall on mama's shoulders.

  Now daddy had to take on more.  The children needed to make sacrifices.  The season lasted for almost six months.  At the beginning it was chaotic and difficult and everyone was cranky and bristley.

  But as the season draws to a close, we each kind of held onto the days tenderly.  

What a bond we had built.  

Think about a time when that was true for you.  A time where you couldn't wait for a season to end yet it was one of the most bonding times of your life.
