Small moments

Life can get overwhelming if you over-think it. The trick, I think, is to take each moment as it comes and appreciate it for what it is.


Kids are tough. If you're outnumbered, its easy to feel mired down in their incessant questions about everyday things. They never slow down, never stop wondering, never stop talking at a volume that's just a wee bit too loud.


But if you can sigh and take a deep breath and shake off the frustration you feel at having to decide just what you're doing to make for dinner AGAIN, they'll remind you of life's simple pleasures.

Like rolling down the windows on a nice day and letting the wind rush through your fingers.

They do remind you to slow down, don't they?
