This is a picture I took on my walk yesterday with my family. The air smelled fresh, the colours were a sure sign of autumn and the only sound I heard was the laughter of my girls as they raced each other to every wooden bench along the path. They ran with joy and with bursts of giggles as they declared who the winner was. There is nothing that pleases me more as a mother, than seeing the smiles on my children's faces. Sometimes life gets too busy, there's not enough time in a day to accomplish everything, so when there is a slower day, a day to enjoy and have nothing planned, its easier to take a deep breath and smell the crisp air, notice the odd flower that miraculously is still visible in the garden, and listen to the sounds that make your heart overjoyed. Yesterday was my reminder that above everything that is going on in my life - family, career, appointments, commitments- there are always those wonderful moments that make me celebrate each day. I hope your day is filled with happiness and joy. Happy Monday!
