Are you so busy you miss the simple things in life? Sometimes I become so involved in the "work" of life I fail to enjoy life. The other day we were out with friends and I realized sitting and talking about life refreshes my spirit and soul far more than working "extra" hours. The simplicity of trees budding, birds building nests, flowers blooming, and grass growing all bring joy and remind us how life continues without our need to be in control. Foals nuzzling their mothers, calves romping across the fields, and hawks catching the air currents are life at its best, if we have our eyes open to enjoy these simple things of life. Too many of us have our heads down or our eyes so focused on the tasks before us we fail to enjoy the simple things, those simple things everywhere about us.
Open your eyes. Slow down on the drive home. Take a walk in the neighborhood. Stop a neighbor and ask how life is treating them. Enjoy the simple things of life and refresh your soul and spirit. You'll be glad you did.
