Stop and Smell the Roses

Good morning and Happy Tuesday!

It can be so hard to get back into the swing of things after a three-day weekend, can’t it?  It feels like a Monday, but actually its Tuesday and it can throw us all for a loop!  It can make us feel behind, almost anxious to “catch up” with time.

But as my husband and I sat outside on our front porch yesterday morning, coffee in hand, sunrise behind the fog as far as our eyes could see, it was nice to sit and take in a breath of fresh air.  We reflected upon the weekend of graduation parties; watching families close a chapter in their lives and begin new ones and how fast the time goes.

It struck a conversation about our own boys and truly treasuring the time that we have with them.  It is so easy to get caught up in a routine, the day in and day out responsibilities, but sometimes we just have to stop and smell the roses.

We must slow down, even though time tries to pull us forward.  This week, this month, this summer lets stop and take the time to enjoy our journey.  Time is something that we don’t get back…we must enjoy the days while we are living them.

So instead of being anxious to catch up, lets slow our stride enough to smell the roses, enjoy the sunshine, and thank the Father for providing these days.

Blessings,

The Johnstons
