Recently I discovered my two year old granddaughter intently watching masses of ladybugs crawling on a tree trunk outside a restaurant. When I asked what she was doing she said, “Sue Sue, look at this! I found millions of ladybugs! Millions! They’re crawling everywhere!”
She was wowed.
What struck me was likely scores of people had walked by the same tree and I wondered how many had noticed the ladybugs. If any, I guarantee they were under the age of five. That’s when I began to understand why life speeds up, out of control. We become so unaware. We just don’t know. We miss so much.
I want to slow down and become a noticer! How about you?
