Close your eyes and smell the new mowed grass,
those first lilacs just a few weeks prior.
Smile at others as you pass them on the street,
and hold your loved ones as close as you can.
You can never love anyone too much.
You cannot spoil your children by kissing them
every time the mood strikes and touching their
velvety soft cheek.
We are blessed each and every day
by the beauty of our surroundings,
the simplicity of our routines,
and the kindness of our friendships.
Make each and every moment count
as life is far too short to not be in it.
Seize the moment.
