Stopping to Smell the Roses

This past week has been such a whirlwind for me….and M too! I’m really trying to slow down just a little bit and remember to be thankful for those little moments that make me smile….(and also pray for patience!! I’m ready for a niece or nephew to arrive safely!!!!)

1. A husband and puppy who are happy to see me when I get home every night 🙂
2. Some fresh eggs that my mother-in-law dropped off earlier this week….tested out a delicious recipe with these….

4. Two sisters who….


always help me keep things in perspective and amaze me every day with her wisdom (even though she’s just the middle sister 😉 )

5. This.


I’m discovering that it’s really really really important to take a minute, say a prayer, and take a deep breath before continuing with a hectic schedule.

Try it.
