As Ferris Bueller said in his movie, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
Don’t get me wrong. This movie is one of my all-time favorites. How could something so profound come from such a goofy movie?
I took half the day yesterday to make pizza for dinner for family–including the extended–in preparation of watching Sophie’s spring performance in Stewartsville, MO yesterday.
I know I complained about snow at the end of April a couple of weeks ago, but how was I to know it would smack us again in May?
This time I didn’t get angry about it, I just enjoyed the show for what it was, which was basically a freak of nature. I’m not saying there isn’t snow routinely on the ground somewhere in May, but this has to be a record for this part of the country. Fortunately for us, the snow was mostly a mixture and never really stuck to the ground.
There were things that I would rather have been doing, but I chose to ignore that and focus on the positive, which was while I was making our pizza, from scratch, I got to watch Ferris Bueller’s Day Off for the first time in quite a while.
At least for a day I didn’t just watch as life went barreling by me, I embraced the conditions and actually enjoyed them and it was really pleasant.
Have a great day everybody.
