Stop and smell the roses

Take time today to stop and smell the roses. Sometimes the most marvelous things in life are the simplest.

Last summer we had some flower pots sitting in front of our house. We ended up not planting them for the season, so they were pushed off to the side. One day I was rushing around to get the girls and I out the door for an appointment, out of the corner of my eye I saw a flower in one of the pots. There was one lone white petunia and one stinging nettle plant in this pot.

First, it was amazing to see these 2 wildly different plants co-habitating together. Secondly, it reminded me to slow down and marvel at the great mysteries of the universe.

Remember that angels can take any shape or form, and to stop and smell the roses once in awhile.
