Monday Challenge

Here we are at the last day of April!  This year is flying by SO fast.  Sometimes it just feels like life is zooming along and I'm not getting everything done!  Do you ever feel that way?

Little Man loves to go on walks, and when we are walking we listen for all the sounds of the outside.  Cars, dogs, cows, wind, etc...  It's amazing how accustomed we become to the beautiful little sounds around us so that we don't even hear them anymore.  Take birds, for example.   They are almost always singing and chirping, but the majority of the time I don't even hear them.  I unconsciously skip over their beautiful sounds.  So, when Little Man and I are walking, we take some time to be quiet and listen to the birds.  The necessity of simple things.

Life is full of little beauties all around us, but we have to slow down enough to notice and enjoy them.

"The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so the necessary may speak."
-Hans Hofmann

Monday Smile Challenge
{Your challenge should you choose to accept it}:
Step outside.  Notice every little detail.  The sun. Warmth. The smell of spring flowers. The ants. Blossoms. And please, listen to the song of the birds.  Guaranteed to make you smile and think, Life is Good:)
