Enjoying The Roses

I have been doing some thinking today.
(Scary I know)
I need to STOP rushing through my life!
The days, and weeks and even months are going way too fast
And I am not savoring the moment.

 I love roses. . . And I love them at all stages
 of their development.
From the tiniest bud
To the full bloom
I enjoy watching them progress.
And so it is with life
I need to enjoy each stage of
My life's development.
I hope to STOP and smell the roses. . . Savor the Beauty
Even when I think I must pass them by. . .
Maybe this beautiful little plaque I found today
Will help me remember the beautiful Rose I have in the Day.
My rose tea cup will help me remember to savor the moment.
though I don't drink tea or coffee,
I love the beauty of a tea cup
Each day is a gift. . .  to be enjoyed and blessed.
  Because I have been given so much. . .
I will cherish each new day. .
I will Savor the Beauty of my life
And Stop and Smell each Rose.

I hope you are having a wonderful Spring Day
And savoring the beauty of your life.
Please do come back again. . . . .K
I will be joining the following parties:
Martha and Terri/Tea Cup Tuesday
A Delightsome Life

  13. Such a lovely vignette. Excellent words. I recently retired and am doing just that...savoring time with my hubby, enjoying the simple pleasures of our lives, our family, grandchildren, photography and some travel around the beautiful USA. I am having a give-away, my very first. If you would like to enter, please hop over to my blog and leave a comment. Blessings


I read each comment and I appreciate the time you spend to leave me one. Thank you so much.
