Every spring since Cal was little we go out and look at the wild flowers. He happened to stop to smell one and my wife snapped this picture. It is a reminder to just stop and enjoy the simple things in life that make us happy. I know the saying goes, “Stop and smell the roses,” but roses take time and pampering to grow, they aren’t simple.
The simple things, the small things, just stopping to take a breath in a hectic world, are what helps us to relieve some of the day to day stress and gain an appreciation for what is really important in life.
So, as you go through your day, week, month and year, remember to take time to “Stop and smell the simple.”
