Stop to Smell the Roses

It seems as Advent begins so does the time of busyness. We find ourselves decorating, shopping, seeing special movies or plays and enjoying the company of friends and family.

These things are all fun and add to the season. But they can also overwhelm us.  I suggest taking a moment every once in a while to Stop to Smell the Roses.  For you that may be; a long soak in the tub, a hot cup of tea, a moment sitting in the backyard, listening to some wonderful music or perhaps just that…smelling the roses. Whatever it is I encourage you to stop, reflect on the meaning of the season for you and breathe.
