“Stop and smell the Roses” is a saying that really has nothing to do with flowers at all! It is a message, for each of us to stop rushing, stop working late, and a reminder that time passes quickly. Stop and enjoy the day, the moment and the minute. Each minute that you miss, is TIME lost and will not return to you again.
Take time to spend time with your family. Make sure you take at least one day a week to do something with your family and turn off your cell phone.
Remember special dates and celebrate special occasions together. Remember that your child, who may be 5 years old today, will never be that age again. What makes them laugh? What interests them? Read to them, talk to them and hug them. Before you know it, they will be grown!
Make a special dinner for your family and set the table with the good dishes that you save for company. The best company that you can entertain is your own family.
Bring home a gift for your spouse. Remember how excited you were when you were dating and could not wait to see each other? Relive that day, and make that day special again. Surprises bring affection and a lasting relationship.
Remember that “One of the Things You Can’t Recover is Time”, so enjoy every family moment together and cherish the memories!
