I could post so many things for slow.. I have so many pictures for slow..
I can't decide so Y'all know I'm going to have a blog full of photo's don't
y'all.. Take it slow.. take a few quiet minutes and enjoy visiting some scenes
of slowness from my life..I have always loved the slow times.. the moments
that we share so peacefully with others..
Slow ride! .. mama said :" watch out for Reuben"..
I would say slow down slow down don't you fall!
Slow Walk.. Emily was sick for so so long...
she was slow as Christmas.. But Cooper walked
along beside her and let her hold his hand..
(most of the time at least!)
Slow down.. Reuben, you are supposed to light
the candles before you bite the cake.. My Mom
and my Brother Reuben.. March 1970
Play it real slow... My oldest son, Anthony, and his oldest, Mason,
slowly playing music on the strange handmade instruments
at the Children's Museum in New Mexico.. July 2006
Why am I way back here and they are way up there??
Do you think I might be slow??? Maybe it was because
they don't have iced tea there.. Or grits... I was a smoker
then and was perished for country cooking and good iced tea...
and they are all young and fast.. I was looking at all the stuff..
I didn't want to rush and spill my lavender lemonade...
The shade was calling me!!
OK !OK! I'm old and I guess I am slow!!!
Have a great day!
~ SLOW ~
Sluggish and settled
or softened with age
Low speed and laid back
a lagging old sage
Overdue and overwhelmed
out of order and old
Wound down and weary
but her heart is pure gold
