Just for Today…Stop and Smell the Coffee…

Just for today, don’t just stop and smell the coffee…sit down…take a load off…

Just for today, drink the whole cup…

Just for today, why don’t you change up dinner…have a real picnic, blanket and all, in your very own backyard…

Just for today, it doesn’t matter what you take to eat for your picnic, just get the kids to help…head on outside…and don’t take “ah, mom”, for an answer…

Just for today, promise you will follow these rules during the picnic: no high tech, leave the IPads, laptops and smart phones inside the house and communicate with not just words but song, stories, laughter and dreams…

Just for today, enjoy the fact that the only sound that you can hear is laughter or the sound of frogs, listen to it…let the peaceful sound take over your mind…enjoy the sounds…hang out with your family and for a few moments let that be all that matters in the whole wide world…

Just for today, make it a point to lay back on your blanket with the kids, the dog and ok ok ok your husband can come, too…lay back on the blanket hold hands, tell stories, sing songs or simply look at the stars and make wishes…

Just for today, who knows, maybe a marshmallow roast will bring your family closer….

And…

Just for today, all will be right with the world…

 

I never did this when my family was growing up, everything was more important. Projects, meetings, conference calls, business trips, money, money and money. Now that I am surrounded by nothing but silence, you know…I long for the giggles and the constant questions. Let the frogs sing for you more often…If a frog croaks at the pond and no one hears it, does it still make a sound?…

Just Keep Swimming…

  1. Yesterday, I drank my entire cup of coffee and chose to spend the day with my husband hiking at Raven Cliff Falls. Sometimes I’m a workaholic, and being a writer makes it more extreme (since I’m able to wake up and walk right to my desk). I think hubby was a little lonely and feeling neglected (as men are wont to do), so I unplugged from Twitter and Facebook (mostly) and spend the entire day exploring the gorgeous Chattahoochee Forest with him. Kicked my butt, but it was a romantic, magical day, and it was good for the marriage. Some of your post advice need to be heeded by those who are rushing by and never stopping to “smell the roses” or to empty their cup. Thanks for the inspiration, friend!
