The Simple Things in Life

Sometimes I think we get so busy we forget to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life. Like bubbles. George stopped to enjoy this particular wonder this morning. Now granted I would not go as far as he did (he was eating them), but it is relaxing and fun to chase bubbles once in awhile. If you have not done it lately stop what you are doing, go to the dollar store, buy a container of bubbles, and come home and sit on your porch blowing bubbles. Not only will you smile but you might even feel relaxed. Just something that kids and dogs can remind us. Another reason I love my job!!

Now that's the truth! One of those magical moments that you just might miss without the benefit of kids and pets. . . Kind of like squatting down and putting your face right up close to a flower, like kids do. Entirely different perspective than standing up and looking from a distance! I wonder how much else we miss from our great heights (for those of us that are still actually taller than our kids, that is! LOL)
