Take the time

Life is too short and moving at a wicked-fast pace. It's so easy to become bogged down in the everyday busyness of life, to forget to stop and smell the morning coffee brewing, to take for granted the sunny days and working toilets, to smile at one another.
Take the time to take a day from work, school, whatever it may be and treat yourself. I did that on Friday - I treated myself to the coast and then dinner later that evening with my hot husband.
Take the time to grill out with family from out of town. Laugh about all the goofy memories made, make some new ones. Challenge each other in love, faith, and even politics. But at the end of it all, hug each other.
Take the time to spend it with friends who are hurting, or if you yourself are hurting. This is a busy season for us right now. We're having a lot thrown at us but God is good, He is sovereign, and His ways are better than ours. Take the time to be with friends - talk about life and the good and the bad and the ugly. Because ya know what, we're all going through this life together.
Take the time to fix broken things around the house. It'll create such a sense of accomplishment when you do it together.
Take the time to smile. Smile because life really is beautiful. Smile because it'll warm your soul and create laugh lines. Smile because someone else needs to see it.
Happy Monday friends!

  1. Oh girl I'm trying. It's almost impossible to find that time in my life right now but occasionally, when someone will watch the kids, Kevin and I get to go out for dinner or something. Glad you've gotten some time to stop and rest lately!

  2. I love this. Thanks for the burst of positivity.

  3. Ah, so refreshing to read.
    Take time to smell the flowers and watch the sunset. Take time to love yourself more.

    Have a blessed weekend!

  4. This is a great reminder, perfect timing for me right now!
