Stopping to Smell the Roses
The other day I lost track of Peter. I announced, "Anybody have a visual on Peter?" Then someone noticed the back slider opened. Peter was outside smelling the flowers. He picked a few and ran them back to us. We were busy inside with dinner and setting the table. I thought about this later on that night and realized there was a lesson he was trying to teach us. Don't be too busy with life. Stop and smell the flowers. Here's this little cutie battling cancer. He had just received a dose of chemo the day before this picture was taken. I guess he walked by the window and noticed the flowers highlighted by the sunset and went out on his own to check them out. When we found him we all stopped and watched. He had everybody take a whiff. We were all delighted. The flowers were our center piece for dinner that night. Take time to enjoy the moment. Thanks for that lesson Peter.
