Life’s Little Joys

Do you ever stop to smell the flowers, literally? What about taking some time out of each day to relax and reflect? These past few weeks have flown by in a whirlwind between the demands of my day job, family life and trying to squeeze in writing whenever I can. It’s all happened so fast I’ve admittedly let the little joys of life drift on by at times. But not anymore—at least that’s my mission.

I’m half-way through a pregnancy and the little one inside has begun to kick up a storm. It truly is the most amazing feeling and I’m not sure I can completely put into words how it really makes me feel. Imagine that… writer loses knack for words.

Anyway, where I’m going with this is that each day we have the opportunity to witness or experience life’s little joys. Sometimes life seems to crawl by and at others it seems to be on turbo speed. It’s near the end of September now and before we know it the season of holidays will be upon us (you know decorations will be up in the stores within the next few weeks) along with tons of precious little moments. The most important reminder I can give you is to just enjoy the small moments or life’s little joys when you get the chance. Take some time to stop and smell the
flowers or the pumpkin pie.  In the mean time, I’ll try to do the same.

Happy writing this week!

    Congratulations Toni. I didn’t know you were expecting. I remember the first time I felt life move inside me. I was amazed at the true miracle of life. Rejoice in this special and precious time in your life.

    Congratulations Toni! I’ve tried to savor and enjoy every moment with my two sons as best I can. My oldest just turned 18 (!!) today and got his driver’s license. Time does speed away no matter how much you wish it didn’t, so it’s better to stop and live in the moment whenever you can. Great post!

  4. I agree, Toni. Life is way to short to let opportunities to enjoy the good things slip away. Too often we focus on correcting what’s wrong when all we really need to do is work toward what’s right. Life’s little irritations and disappointments will many times cure themself if we just walk away and stay focused on the goal. Thanks for reminding us of that. And congratulations on the new baby.
