What price…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset bore a canvas of colorful shades of a dozen colors. The night sky was cleared by last nights storms, and the evening sky gave promise to more.

Today was a day of catchup, and I didn’t need mustard either. The day meant working on things I had set aside, or taking a moment to slow down and smell the roses. The purple roses are best right now and assail me with their pleasant fragrance!

Isn’t it nice to be assailed with something you enjoy? Isn’t it amazing to just take the time to enjoy life? I have found over the years that sometimes the best choices are sublime, and the most memorable times are not the grandiose excitements but just the times we can stop, enjoy the moments, and find a path to a little more. Going to San Diego may be exciting, but playing with the baby on the floor may turn out to mean more. A new car may be over the top, but a new puppy or kitty may give more long term enjoyment. I trip to Tahiti, well, thats awesome. Spending a few moments with someone who appreciates you may mean more. So it goes.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider the price of not slowing down sometimes. Consider well how precious life is, and how wonderful you are each day. Then make the decisions best for you, and enjoy your life all you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love with all your heart, and enjoy the moments…
