Today as I was in the kitchen, I saw the fortune cookie that has been sitting in there for the past two weeks or so. Curtis and I ordered Chinese takeout a while ago, and Curtis never unwrapped or ate his fortune cookie. I was kindof sick of it just sitting there so I decided I was going to break it to see what the fortune read. I didn't want the cookie part - just the message inside. I had a feeling it was going to be a good one, I could feel it, and sure enough I was right. It is a simple message that we always hear, but important to be reminded of. This is the message:
DO NOT RUSH THROUGH LIFE. PAUSE AND ENJOY IT.
Boy, is that the truth. Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we forget to "stop and smell the roses." I am enjoying the rain today. I am enjoying that I can see my flowers starting to come up - tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, etc. I am enjoying that spring is just around the corner - this Friday to be exact. I hope you stop and enjoy life today and everyday!!
