Are you ready to stop and smell the roses? Grab this printable and let’s make the most of this time with the kiddos. Kids don’t keep!
As I talked about in Sunday’s newsletter, I’m often tempted to stop time, to freeze my family life just right where it is so that I don’t miss anything, build regrets, or have to deal with hard things and kids’ growing up.
You and I both know that that isn’t possible.
Instead, we can stop what we’re doing and enjoy the moment for what it is: beautiful, yet fleeting.
This month, I’m revisiting my series, Stop and Smell the Roses, on Periscope. Every day this month, we’ll be chatting about one of the topics in the series, brainstorming ideas, and generally discussing this notion that we can’t stop time, but we sure could try to enjoy it more!
Stop and Smell the Roses
I hope you’ll join me! You can follow along on the periscope app. My handle is jessicagfisher.
