Melissa Kaylene: Small joys.

Small joys.

I can admit it.
I'm a dreamer.
I've been doing a lot of reflecting on my  life and dreams lately. Maybe it's the gorgeous weather, my husband loosing his job; maybe its just that I've slowed down enough to actually think.
To actually enjoy.
To remember what's important in life.
We are only given an x number of years to breathe.
I've had these old country lyrics bouncing in my head for quite some time:

"I'm in a hurry to get things done,
I rush and rush until life's no fun,
all I really gotta do is live and die,
but I'm in a hurry and don't know why."

I want to live. 
Really live .

I sat and played with my kids. I played make believe with my three year old. I had so much fun watching his smiles and sheer joy . It was so rewarding. I realized, why haven't I done this more often? Why am I rushing so much? This time will only happen once.

never again.

Don't always let time pass you by when you are so busy trying to get ahead.
Enjoy the small things now.




  1. awesome! love playing with my 16mos old. I do remind myself to play once a day! Lovely post.

  2. Good Morning Melissa, We all need to take a moment to enjoy life as I think most of us are guilty of rushing around from one thing to another.
    Today, I will take your advice, and enjoy the moment.
    Best Wishes

  3. Great post! It is a nice to reminder to really sit back and take in the moment. Something I try to make an effort to do everyday. And nice and warm weather always make me happier:)
