Simple things: part TWO

A prior blog entry of mine talks about enjoying the simple things in life. You know.. learn from yesterday. Live for today. Hope for tomorrow. Stop and smell the roses kind of simple things in life.

Last night I was given a gift. It was a set of glasses with a matching pitcher. Immediately I thought "sangria! summertime!" My evening goes on and when I get home I look at the glasses and matching pitcher. No, I didn't look at them in detail earlier in the evening because I was having too much fun. I was enjoying my company and living in the moment. Anyway, there are little writings...sayings of sorts on the actual glasses & pitcher itself. I'd like to share some of the writings with you:
    Let your spirits soar.
    Settle for more.
    Delight your friends.
    Eat outdoors.
    Cherish family.
    Feel the sun.
    Go barefoot.
    Have adventures.
    Sleep under the stars.
    Breathe deeply.
    Indulge your senses.
    Build sandcastles.
    Laugh often.

I am fortunate enough to have my boys who remind me every day how important it is to appreciate the little things... to make every moment count... to go barefoot... to laugh often.

Recently we took a much needed "family day off" from Los Angeles. We took the boys to Legoland. It was fantastic. Not because Legoland has a new Star Wars exhibit but because we were all together. Why were we all together? Because we took the time to stop and ENJOY LIFE ....... throughout the entire day we LAUGHED and had ridiculous amounts of fun. And in our every day life we DO appreciate the little things. I absolutely encourage you to do the same. 

ROCK ON....
