Enjoy the beauty . . .

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

There are so many beautiful things for us to enjoy -- the colors of a sunrise or sunset, the sound of the ocean as the waves come onto the beach, the sound of a child's laugh, the smell of blooming flowers, the birds singing in the trees.

I didn't used to be a "stop & smell the roses" kind of girl -- I was too busy. After having cancer, my perspective on life really changed. Life was good before, but it's so much better now that I've learned to stop & enjoy the beauty of God's creation.

Let go of stress -- it's so bad for you anyway!!

Today's challenge: Look for the beauty around you today.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    I feel the same way! After coming so close to death, I appreciate everything and everybody. I make more of an effort to 'like' everyone, to forgive, and not hold grudges. Life is funny and you have no expiration, so live while you can!

    I wasn't a stop and smell the roses kind of gal until I raised a special needs child. That experience changed my life's view tremendously. I'm not the same woman I once was. There are so many little things in the world to be grateful for.
