Your Stop Sign

I know that we are all busy beyond measure these days. If it’s not the office demanding your attention, it’s the laundry, or an aging parent, a needy friend, an empty refrigerator. But guess what – all of that will still be there if you don’t attend to it right away. So, if you do nothing else today, do this:

Stop everything, just for a moment, and be still. Listen to the hum of your house or the laughter of your kids. Breathe deeply the smell of springtime and watch as the sunsets in the west. Feel the warmth of your child’s back as you hug them goodnight. Hold hands with someone. And most of all, look around at the multitude of blessings that you have been granted.
