Do you live in the moment-to-moment or do you find yourself "zapping" from one destination to the next without recalling the drive to get there? Do you feel as if you are losing yourself? There are days I go through the day and crawl into bed and realize I hadn't stopped to smell the rose
The smile a peanut butter and jelly brings my 12 year old son as he loses himself and gives me that occasional look I remember from when he was younger and not trying so hard to be "cool". The way my 10 year old daughter runs around on all fours because she's trying to "perfect" her wolverine run. Yes, she watches Animal Planet and happened to catch the show on wolverines and they described in detail the exact way they run so she has taken to run around like a wolverine. This is very disturbing when we have house guests and they catch her running 20 miles per hour past them on all fours. It's quite the sight. The smiles a warm and hearty meal puts on my families face on stormy dark night when I serve them these French Onion Steaks. Take a moment for yourself and take a look around at "everyday" life and the love and enthusiasm that our world is filled with. If you're feeling lonely know that you only need to look around and realize that there are people all around you and there is no need to feel lonely. Participate in life, go out and talk to people and smile at someone today. You may change someones life just because you put on your smile!
