While preparing to head out for my long run late this afternoon (I had to wait for it to cool down, a bit), Tilden came inside and said, “Mama, Taylor and I want to run with you today.”
While Tilden insisted he could run the full distance with me, I convinced him that maybe we should shoot for a nice, warm-up mile instead, especially since his sister jumped on her bike and was already speeding past us. I knew I was cutting it short on daylight, but, as per usual, my kids reminded me that “taking the time” is so very important in this over-scheduled-too-fast-paced life we lead…especially when we had to slow to a walk and Tilden said, “I like it when we walk, because then we can talk to each other too.”
It was the best 20 minute mile I’ve ever run, and we already have a date for another one!
“Enjoy the little things in life… for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.”
