Don't Be In A Hurry

Since finding out about the affair 9 months ago, my life has really slowed down a TON.
That is probably because I dropped everything I was doing.
 I dropped facebook, I dropped friend activities, book club, etc.
And you know what??
I've liked it.
I look at some of my friends that are ALWAYS on the go and it exhausts me. (not that there is anything wrong with that and maybe they just LOVE their life that way and that is fine)
But I used to be that kind of person and I wonder why?
What for?
Why did I need to participate in EVERYTHING that was going on?
I mean, I think certain things are important...mainly where service comes in like watching other people's kids or making someone dinner, etc.
But anyone out there who feels like they can't have a gap in their schedule :
I challenge you to just take ONE WEEK and not schedule anything.
 Spend more quiet time with your kids and with your husband and with yourself.
 Don't get on facebook.
Don't be in a hurry to cross everything off of your to-do list.
Like the song says : Let the world go on without you (because it will).  Enjoy the beautiful weather that we are having and breathe it in. 
It might help to imagine you live on the prairie like Laura Ingles. haha
 
You know my old car needs washing
And the front yard needs a trim
And the telephone keeps ringing
And the bossman knows I know it's him

And the bills ain't gonna pay themselves
Don't matter anyway
'Cause I ain't in no hurry today

Nothing wrong when I know
Cane fishing pole and smell of early spring
Sit down in a fold up easy chair
On a quiet, shady river bank

Let the world go on without me
Wouldn't have it any other wa
y'Cause I ain't in no hurry today

Ain't in no hurry, 
I'd be a fool now to worry
About all those things I can't change
And the time that I borrow can wait till tomorrow
'Cause I ain't in no hurry today

When I must return to the cold, cold ground
Have 'em take their time when they lay their sinner down
Heaven knows that I ain't perfect, ways of little Caine
And I plan to raise a whole lot more before I hear those angels sing

Gonna get by with the Lord
But there'll be hell to pay
But I ain't in no hurry
Ain't in no hurry,
 I'd be a fool now to worry
About all those things I can't change
And the time that I borrow can wait till tomorrow
'Cause I ain't in no hurry, ain't in no hurry, ain't in no hurry today
