Stop And Smell The Roses

Jury Duty - We're deliberating. I hope this will be over tomorrow. My head is heavy and I don't want to think any more. I almost didn't do this post but after taking a nap I feel better. Still, after this I'm going to bed. I just want to remind everyone...Life is short. Sometimes what we think we HAVE to do can wait until tomorrow.

Stop and let your finger tips feel something soft.



The next time it rains, lift your face to the sky and enjoy the feel of rain on your face.



Hug someone you love, close your eyes and just enjoy the feel of their arms around you and your arms around them.



Take a minute to inhale. Inhale deeply, relax and remember that sometimes the most precious things in life are those that we often take so much for granted. Please stop and smell the roses.

I can only imagine how much these WEEKS have weighed heavy on your spirit. I only had three days. Looking forward to your being able to vent it all. Indeed, we need to stop now and again and smell those flowers.

Wise words indeed, if only we all made more time in our lives to smell the roses what a better world it would be.
