It's no secret that I spend a lot of time running - both literally and figuratively. Sometimes it seems like I am constantly on the go - running kids back and forth to school or activities or appointments or whatever, running errands, running here, running there...and then the actual "running" when I go and get some exercise and have a good brain dump.
It's amazing how much we miss when we run constantly. This week, I've been walking the boys back and forth to school as much as I can. It's giving me some extra exercise, it's saving gas in the van, it's giving them exercise - and I'm seeing things that I pass by every day that I've never noticed before.
Whether it's the reflection of the clouds in the water, a redbud tree in full bloom, the rising sun, or just a child's curiosity, sometimes the most amazing things can be seen when we stop running.
