One of the speakers at church yesterday made a passing comment about taking minute vacations...just stopping now and then to experience the beauty that surrounds us.
I instantly fell in love with the idea.
So, today I am committing to stop and notice things.
If I'm busy and one of my babies wants to interrupt, I will stop, look them in the eye, and treasure the fleeting moment of their childhood.
If I am driving to pick up Bubs from school, I will breathe and look up at the clouds over the mountains.
If I am reading a book, I will take a moment to enjoy the imagery or the use of a particular word.
If I am breastfeeding, I will smell the aroma of my newborn and hold his chubby hand in mine.
If I am bathing, I will pause to enjoy the warmth of the water and the sound of the rain on the window.
If I am eating, I will take a moment to make the presentation beautiful and then enjoy the taste of the food.
Life is fleeting. Let's enjoy it before it's gone.
