Missed Opportunities
As I was mowing the yard tonight, I saw one of the most beautiful sunsets.

The colors in the sky were breathtaking. 
My initial reaction was I will stop on my next go around and snap a picture and just gaze at it.

But because I was racing trying to finish mowing tonight I missed the opportunity.
Not gonna lie, I was a little disappointed.

But then I got to thinking, and that can be a dangerous thing.

How many other things have I missed by always being in a hurry?
How many moments with my kids have I missed?
How many moments have I missed with my husband, friends or family?

The time-lapse was literally close to 1-2 minutes, seriously. And in that short time, the total picture changed. 

Time really does go fast!.
And guess what, I didn't finish mowing tonight.

So not only did I miss out on seeing a beautiful sunset, but the job is still not done.

Why am I telling you this?
