In the midst of life, “to do” lists and just lots of stuff, there are moments when we choose to stop and smell the roses (or the fresh flowers adorning my Easter table works quite well too.)
Because seemingly insignificant moments go by so quickly that I want to pause and enjoy them…
like taking my camera off of “auto” to capture the beauty of these flowers.
Or finding the perfect white teacups for $1 at this weekend’s yard sale –
My heart lept when I saw them, and they will look so happy with the plaid yard sale material that doubled as a table cloth yesterday.
(frugal tablescape in process)
How about peaking in on college aged sisters singing and worshiping spontaneously in our sitting room? (Yes – holding hands made the moment more precious for this auntie.)
Or “Chillin'” cousins and brothers who know it’s cool to just hang out and talk. (This picture makes my heart swell. The girls were there a second earlier before they left to go sing, but I missed that pic, unfortunately.)
Ah, there are so many more things that I want to stop, view through my grateful lens and enjoy, but my huge “catch up and do” list is calling.
So in the middle of cooking a ton of food for this,
and thoroughly enjoying the laughter and energy that filled our living room this this. ..
I can’t wait to show you the project that side tracked much of my weekend time on this…
Just a hint…not only does the painted color turquoise bring me joy, but it works on laminate….oh yes it does!
