Smell the Roses

Hi Everyone
Happy Friday
We Live near the beach in Southern California
being able to
 take walks barefoot in the sand
even on a cloudy day
hold hands
collect shells and watch the sunsets
Last night  the sky was a beautiful painting
 filled with  light and colors that  simply
took our breath away
We have a saying  in our family that for each sunset we watch
 it adds another day to our life
I know that stopping to look at the beauty that surrounds us 
brings  us joy and peace
Surround your life with beauty 
Don't be afraid to take the  time to
 smell the roses along the way
or watch a sunset
 hold hands
I Hope you get the chance to see the beauty around you
 to open your eyes and your hearts to
 the joy of each moment to
know that
Life is a beautiful gift
