I headed down to the store this morning on the high street and had to keep stepping over snails.
I honestly lost count at how many I had to walk around as to not hear a crunching sound from under my boot. Since I always have a camera on me I took the time to bend down and snap a few photos of them. Sometimes like the snail it can feel like we are waiting forever for something to happen. Like the ten years it took me to finally get back to living in Europe. However time is all about context and it can go past us quicker than a blink of the eye. I honestly still cannot believe it is the last couple days of April before we are in May of 2013. It does not seem that long ago that it was Christmas and we had just moved into our new place in Bath, England. My youngest will be turning six years old in May and I can hardly belive that much time has gone past. So how come when life seems to moving so fast, can it seem like it also moves so slow? For me I am just trying to make sure I make the most of every day and that I devote my time and energy on those I love and those who mean the purpose of life.
Make sure you tell the ones you love how you feel today. Though it might feel like ‘just another monday’ its another precious day of life that will pass by fast.
