Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. - Helen Keller

Tick Tock, Tick Tock, Foward Ever the Hands of the clock...

I found myself sitting here at my PC and decided it was well past time to post more to my blog. Bad me! I get so bogged down with day to day life that I forget to take time out for the simple things in it.

Today I took my kids, put them in the truck and headed out for a drive. We didn't go anywhere in specific, just enjoyed the lovely country roads and each others company. At times I find myself so frustrated at my kids because I can't seem to find any personal time, then I step back and remind myself that they will not be young forever, that there will come a day when my arms ache to hold them and they will then not have time for me. So what am I saying here? I guess, just to appriciate what we have and not take a single moment for granted, to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us in all the small details. To set aside our busy schedules for at least 5 minutes a day and appriciate the life that surrounds us.
