One minute

Today (and yesterday) Amanda over at Soule Mama blogged about finding those rare 10 minutes in your day to be mindful, to pause, and to savor.  Today I didn't quite make it to 10 solid minutes, but her words stuck with me and as I juggled the activities of the day, and I did find myself feeling more mindful of the little minutes, so today I strung my 10 minutes throughout the day, ten fleeting moments where I let life freeze, I took a deep breathe and simply lived.  Today I spent:
  • One minute sipping my coffee and just breathing before the flurry of the day
  • One minute tiptoeing barefoot through the garden thinking ahead to spring
  • One minute sewing on the final button on my babies new dress
  • One minute watching that sweet baby sleep (in her new dress!!)
  • One minute tossing the baseball to our little Red Sox Fan
  • One minute catching leaves as they fell to the earth
  • One minute jumping in the leaf pile
  • One minute scratching the warm soft ears of our dog
  • One minute sitting downstairs thinking that maybe in a few minute I should go tackle that pile of laundry upstairs (and never actually doing it)
  • One minute painting a fairy castle - in pink and purple of course!
