Taking time to smell the flowers!

Sometimes life is stressful...
Sometimes it all seems too much.
Sometimes I don't know how to fit it all in. Recently I've been juggling with a new full-time job, teenagers fretting about GCSEs and A Levels and Life, teenagers acting up, a house to keep on top of, neglected relatives and friends, a tired, stressed husband, broken toilets, too much month at the end of the money...
Sometimes the list of things keeping me awake seems endless.

Making lists, planning, vowing to be more organised, trying to chivvy the rest of the family into doing their bit will only get me so far.

Sometimes I just need to 'be'.
To be mindful. To be aware and enjoy the scents and the sounds and the sights of Outside.
To find time to sit in the sun. To literally smell the flowers. To breeeeeeaaaaaaathe!
