Life Rushing By
When life feels like it is rushing by
I fix myself a cup of tea with milk
Snuggle in on the couch
And let my mind wander
Until it returns home to me.
I know it is home
And that I have caught up with me
When I can feel that sigh
Arising from deep within my chest
And the internal chatter slows to a halt.
In those moments
I can hear what is most important
Like petting Sarah
Until she is sound asleep beside me
And snuggling with my husband a little longer
Before heading out into my world.
Life feels so much better to me
When it is not rushing by
But instead can be welcomed
With open arms and an open heart.
