There are days when life seems to be overwhelming and I forget to take time and enjoy life. I forget to be the wife and mom I was created to be and focus on the never ending to do list that every wife and moms create for themselves.
Recently, I took time to really enjoy nature - to capture the beauty of it through my lens. As I took picture upon picture, I wondered what the original flowers looked like. I wondered about the beauty of their colors, the aroma of their sweet nectar and the way the atmosphere must have felt on your skin.
As my friends and I crossed over bridges - we created new ones. New bonds, memories and the sweetness of friendship I could not have truly experienced in a different setting. It gave us a chance to let down our guards and have those discussions that had been looming for months but the timing had not been right.
Right there, in the beauty of nature, truth and love were revealed. The to-do lists were forgotten and hearts were mended.
So, Mama, I want you to take a moment – experience what you can through whatever device you are using. Just step into the garden. Let your hair down and for two minutes – forget that to-do list. Yes, it will be there (and a few more items will be added)… but these moments are for you.
