I’ve been asked where this blog title comes from.
“All those days that came and went, little did I know that they were my life.”
Old Scandinavian saying
I first heard this from my mother-in-law, who I believe has, or had, an old plate with this saying on it. Variations of this saying show up all over the internet, but I can’t seem to track down a reliable original source to credit. First time Google has failed me in a long time.
From her vantage point, in her 80s, this resonates louder with each passing decade. First time she shared this with me, it stopped me in my tracks … briefly … but then I quickly moved on to the next task. I now pause longer and reflect on it. I’m watching those days more mindfully in 2013. This blog is about sharing some of those observations.
