"Not now", I snapped. "I'm in a hurry. Come on fast."
"But Mamma, look, this is so interesting."
"I'm telling you, not now. Let's go home."
"But Mamma, please."
"Come on. Can't you realise I am in a hurry. I don't have time to waste."
"Mamma, but just see these ants for one minute. They are so pretty."
"Are you coming or not?", I threatened. "Okay, but only for two minutes."
We spent some precious minutes watching ants carry home a tiny piece of bread.Most things can wait five minutes. Time spent enjoying the "now" is priceless.
