I found this today and thought it was perfect for my situation right now. I am always so busy that I don't take time for the small things in life that are so very important to me and who I am as a person. I know everyone in this world is always so busy and I think we all just need to take more time to relax. I hope this touches someone like it did me.
Take time to think-It is the source of all power.
Take time to read- It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to play- It is the source of perpetual youth.
Take time to be quiet- It is the opportunity to seek God.
Take time to be aware- It is the opportunity to help others.
Take time to love and be loved- It is God's greatest gift.
Take time to laugh- It is the music of the soul.
Take time to be friendly- It is the road to happiness.
Take time to dream- It is what the future is made of.
Take time to pray- It is the greatest power on earth.
Take time to give- It is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to work- It is the price of success.
There is a time for everything. . . .
Here are some small things I have taken the time to do lately. The little things in life are always the best things in life. :)
We took our kids to the water park and they all LOVED it!! Here is a picture of Tristan and Payton "catching" the waves and trying to jump over them. The wave pool was one of their favorites.
Gracie LOVED playing in the water and she is wearing my swimsuit I wore when I was her age in this picture. :)
Pushing my sweet little Gracie on the swing is a wonderful little thing in life. She LOVES it so very much and laughs and squeals the whole time.
We took our kids to the fair and they had a great time!!
Gracie just hanging out at the fair.
Payton ("Bear")was smiling this same big cheesy smile for days and is still talking about how much fun he had at the fair!
We also went camping with my family which was one of the best times I have had in a very long time. Everyone had a great time and it was very relaxing and the lake was gorgeous. My boys spent almost the whole time catching tiny baby frogs along the shore.
I have taken MANY moments to just pray. I pray to God for strength to get through everyday and to be the best mommy and wife that I can possibly be. I pray for my children to grow up and have Jesus in their heart always. Prayer is one of the most important things in my life...
I hope everyone else will take the time to enjoy and appreciate the little things in life today because you never know what will happen to the ones you love tomorrow or the next. Cherish every moment...
