With the days going by so quickly and frantically around here, I have been forcing myself to take a little time out to count my blessings. It is just too easy for me to get caught up in all the madness of my everyday life and not take a moment to enjoy some of the beauty that the Lord has given me.
Even if I just make a simple cup of tea, sit down and relax by my flowers for just a few minutes, it brings me peace.
Gazing at the flowers and letting my mind drift can be a sort of meditation.
Letting go of all the chaos that my brain is whirling around all the time gives me the opportunity to focus on what is important.
I try not to lose the chance to admire what is right in front of me because I am so caught up in all the other aspects of what makes up my life.
It only takes 15 minutes to just sit still, clear the mind and enjoy what is around you.
You will never have those 15 minutes again. So, savor the amazing wonders and blessings every chance you can!
