See these flowers? Pretty huh? But they are more than that! They have taught me a lesson that I hope I don’t forget again!
I’ve been busy lately…REALLY busy! Busy is not a bad thing, but sometimes we need to stop and “smell the roses” so to speak! I haven’t been doing enough of that lately! I’ve been so caught up in work that I’ve forgotten some of the important things in my life….the most important things in my life!
These “important” things include my family, beauty, and sparkles!
The other night, B and Bug went to the store, while I worked (and lately, I’m always freaking working). They got some Powerade (that I’d forgotten on an earlier shop), and some milk that I’d requested. And they bought THESE!
This picture does these flowers NO justice! You see those white flowers there? They have SPARKLES in them! That’s right! SPARKLES! Sometimes I forget to sparkle, and I am ever-so-thankful that I have my family to remind me that the sparkles in my life are what are important.
My family is more important to me than anything in this world! They ARE my sparkles. I am thankful to have them, thankful that they rock my world, and thankful that they bring me back to reality on a daily basis! I would be lost without them!
So tomorrow, as you pine over your work schedule, your cleaning, your never-ending list of to-do items….sit back and remember the sparkles in your life and smile!
And tomorrow, I plan on taking a break to enjoy all of my “sparkles”! They deserve it, and so do I! Life is good! Sparkle on!
