In a rare, photo-less post, I’d just like to take a minute to remind everyone to stop and smell the roses. Mostly figuratively, but also literally if you get the chance. As a school teacher I treasure the days of summer that seem to zip by all too quickly. Labor Day rolls around and I must return to work. And reality. I’ve worked 12-hour days all week and gone to bed most nights by 9:00.
Life is busy. And crazy. Your children will grow up quickly (trust me). Your friends will move away. So my Simple Life suggestions are these:
Hug your children. Call your parents. Next time the weather cooperates, drop everything that doesn’t need to be done this very instant and run to the beach or whatever makes you happy.
Life is too short and time is too precious for you to watch it pass you by with the “need-tos”.
If you’re not out enjoying the last of the summer weather, take a minute to check out the other suggestions for a simple life at the blog hop.
