to stop and smell the roses or the coffee or whatever pleases you.
Everywhere we look, we see warnings about what the 'elite' are doing to gain complete control over the rest of us. And they seem to be doing just that. High gas prices. Rising grocery prices. Shortages of products needed by farmers to provide the rest of us with food. Hoards of illegal aliens washing over our borders like a tidal wave. The list is endless.
Many of us who are preparing to keep our families fed during whatever disaster or plandemic happens next, are feeling like time is running out. And we are wearing ourselves out doing everything possible to stay afloat. This can lead to burnout or feeling like our efforts are not enough to make a difference. And here is where taking time for rose and coffee sniffing comes in.
We need to take time to enjoy whatever makes us happy. In my case, a morning spent with a daughter, a granddaughter and a couple of great grands provided me with enough 'happy' to last a while.
My grocery delivery this coming Thursday includes chicken breast and hamburger to be frozen until I can find enough jars to can it. And a variety of frozen vegetables to dehydrate. But until then, I am thoroughly enjoying myself with sewing a quilt for the young gentleman with all that dark hair. :)
We have enough bad stuff going on. And we will keep on doing our best for our families. But now and then, we need to take time to enjoy whatever makes us happy. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in preparing that we forget we still have lives to live.
Those who keep trying to make us miserable are going to hate the fact that even after they do their dirty deeds, we are still happy in our faith, our families and with life in general.
Go sniff a rose.
