Picture This (Texas Wild Flowers)



When you are stressed out, in a hurry, too much to do, take just a moment, close your eyes and picture this...



Maria and I were running late this morning, both frustrated with one of the cars greeting us with a flat tire in the drive way, we were already a full hour behind schedule. As we were both pulling out of the driveway after fixing the tire, Maria suddenly saw flowers beginning to poke thier heads up from the ground already starting to bloom.

She stopped her car, got out, and as if she had all the time in the world, sat down next to the flowers and quietly pulled the weeds from around each of them. After a few moments of being lost in another beauriful world of peace and heavenly beauty, she stood up, got back into her car and went on her way to just another busy day. Even though she was already late, she knew she saw a once in a year, special moment, and had time to witness the birth of another spring. She wasn't about to miss it either.

No matter how busy you are, take a moment to smell the roses along the way...
