Stop and Smell the Roses

Wow...Where has the time gone. I cannot believe the its is already August and my kids will be going back to school in less than two weeks! I have been so busy that I have not taken time to stop and smell the roses. I feel like life is passing me by so quick and I feel like I'm alway in fast forward. Where did the summer go?? I wanted to do so much but never seem to have the time to do it. As the boys get older time seem to splipping away! So today August 9th 2010 I vow to STOP and smell the roses!

Well who are my roses? My husband Nick and my two boys Nicholas and Vincent!

I vow to Stop and listen to my son Vincent when he tells me about his video games even if I have no idea what he is talking about.

I vow to Stop and listen to my son Nicholas who has a hard time telling the details of a story and keeps telling me "you know what I mean" when I really do not. I will help him pull out the details so we are both not frustrated.

I vow to get back to my once a week board game night and even let the boys win.

I vow to listen to my husband Nick when he is talking about sports and maybe I might actually like it and learn somthing.

I vow to let Nick watch Sunday and Monday night football because he don't ask for much.

I vow to take a deep breath and look around of what I have and not what I don't.

I vow to think before I speak.

I vow to be a forgiving more loving person.

Sometimes you get caught up in your duties of eveyday life that you need to STOP and smell the roses!
