Within the past several months, my son has developed a fascination for dinosaurs. Cam gets so excited about dinosaurs, and his fav is T-rex. There is a video about dinosaurs on ABC mouse that he will watch and sing the dinosaur song several times before moving on to his lesson for the day. Of course, he has several dinosaur toys…
At story time this past Tuesday, Cam was so excited when he saw all of the dinosaur books. Of course, he knew all of the dinosaurs, and had plenty of questions about dinosaurs and their extinction for the librarian. And to add to his excitement, the librarian brought out dinosaur puppets at the end of story time, and oh boy, Cam’s hand was glued to the dinosaur puppet. There was a little girl who wanted to see the dinosaur puppet and came over to ask me because Cam was not sharing.
Cam has already started his Christmas list, and I am surprised he has not included dinosaurs on his list; however, he may get a little surprise in his stocking….hint…they roamed the earth millions of years ago.
As I was preparing my dinner plate this evening, I was thinking about how I was going to repond to today’s word of the day. I almost left the dinner table to go start typing my response to today’s blog, and then I realized, is anything really that urgent?
Is it really that urgent to wash the dishes or throw a load in the washing machine or dryer instead of sitting down to enjoy a meal with your family?
Is it really that urgent to make a phone call instead of reading a book to your children?
Is it really that urgent to get to where you are going and have total silence in the car instead of leaving early enough and being able to sing a song with your children ?
Is it really that urgent to finish a home or work project immediately instead of taking breaks to drink water or eat a meal, instead of checking your blood sugars, checking your blood pressure, checking your heart rate, exercising for 30 minutes, or putting your feet up as prescribed by your doctor to control swelling in your feet?
If we plan accordingly, prioritze efficiently, and act in accordance of being in the best possible health possible while living your dreams and accomplishing your goals, then is there really anything that urgent?
From my heart to yours,
