A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

SMELL THE ROSES


Life is too serious.

We get all caught up in trying to do things we think makes us happy.

We work until exhaustion at a job we think is fulfilling. Then the job description changes.

For years, we try to cultivate trusting relationships with those we believe are in our corner. Then they deliver the knock-out punch.

We slave to pay off our bills, then we break a crown or the dog needs anal gland surgery!

But just when you're fed up to your eyeballs in serious stuff, out pops a wonderful moment that takes your breath away and makes you realized what's really important ... like a grandchild's beautiful smile.

Spend this weekend doing something that makes you truly happy.

My mantra: Love, Peace, Health, Happiness & Serenity.
Enjoy nature, love your family, volunteer in your community, all these will make your heart happy.
Don't spend a lot of money on gifts, give the gift of your time instead, as a visit, lunch or dinner with family and friends to celebrate special occasions. I have finally convinced my family that the time we spend together is so much more precious than a token gift.
Lastly, enjoy your grandchildren, spend time with them and listen as they tell you their little stories and their views of life. I guarantee that you will laugh and learn as much as they do. I volunteer at a local kindergarden and my time with these children is special for all of us.
Never forget to smell the roses and don't worry about the thorns.

How could anyone be down when they have such a cutie to cheer them up. Give that girl tons of hugs and kisses every chance you get! Parker too!! Love for your family is what life is all about and that is what will be passed on to the generations to come. No one will remember how much we owed on our credit cards or whether a tree fell on your Corvette.
