Sandra Tayler is a blogger I follow who is also the author of a terrific kids book, “Hold on to Your Horses”. Howard Tayler, creator of webcomic Schlock Mercenary, is fortunate enough to be married to her. I value her insights into parenting as we seem to have children with similar behaviour patterns. This post by her, Learning to slow down made me smile and brought a little happy tear to my eye.
I looked again at the silver head in front of me. There was a fluffy silver head in the passenger seat. I suddenly pictured them as one of those long-happily-married couples. I could picture him opening the door for her and them walking slowly together so that observers can not be sure who is lending balance to whom. Such couples have seen a lot of things in their lives and they have learned the lack of value in most of the rushing.
I hope to be there someday with my own personal Goddess. Read the rest of the post for some good advice.
