This time of year always seems to be the start of the hustle and bustle.
It's FINALLY getting warm out so who really want's to be stuck indoors all the time?
The sun is out. Again, who wants to be stuck indoors?
Spring sports begin. My son is in baseball and my daughter is in softball so I'm pretty much running every night for that.
Then there is the day job. Remind me again why women fought for women to work. Gah! LOL!
Of course there is always keeping up the house and homework. Slip in some television and there really isn't much time for anything else.
Like sewing. *sigh*
So....even with all that. When it seems that life just never stops...remember to stop for a moment and take in what's around you. Appreciate the small things and smile. Take a deep breath and just take in that moment. Maybe it's a quiet moment when all the kids are in bed and you have a mile long list of things to do...just take 5 minutes and relax and look back on the day and it's goodness!
You just might find yourself smiling at some things similar to these...
|Crocus' in bloom...love that purple...|
|Lilacs. My favourite spring flower. They make the house smell sooo good!|
|Bleeding Hearts. Another favourite. They are just so unique!|
|Tulips. Who doesn't like tulips?|
|Toads in little boys hands. (Personally I think this is disgusting...lol)|
|Toads on little boys knees. Those things like to pee on you. Just sayin'...lol|
|And of course, little boys giggling when the toads jump off said knee and on their lap..lol!|
If we don't stop when life doesn't, we will miss those little things that make us laugh and smile. Those are important. They keep us going.
So, stop and smell the flowers, or clean toad pee off your child, or hey, do both! You will look back one day and tell stories about it! :D
