When I am constantly running down there is no time for being. When there is no time for being there is no time for listening. I will never understand the dying of the green pie apple tree if I do not slow down and listen to what the spirit is telling me. ~Madeleine L'engle "Walking on water"

~enjoying the slowing of down and making time for the being. 
Daily learning to be more aware of always so thankful.
