Take the time to stop and "smell the roses"

Well the clocks have spring forward and spring is in the air. Hopefully you have some annual flowers planted in your yard that will soon be blooming. Time to wash down the patio furniture to sit in while the weather is still cool not blistering hot. You can enjoy the nature and the breeze in the daylight and relax later as you enjoy the stars in the sky at night. We enjoyed a game of rummy the other night, which we hadn't played in years. Make the most of your time at home by enjoying the time you have to relax. We went through old photo albums from decades ago, we had a blast reminiscing about so many things. We had forgotten moments that came flooding back with each picture. Suddenly we could vividly see the day in our minds that were buried deep in our memories. In the old days we took lots of pictures which we filled in photo albums. Now they are there to enjoy the memories they evoke. Nowadays photo albums are non existent to the last generation or two. They will have no way to trigger those special memories that are buried deep in their minds. You need to take pictures because you need help to remember all the good times for decades and they won't pop up unless they get triggered. The same is true for "small talk" that brings up subjects that you don't always have time for. You miss a lot of "little things" if you are always in too big of a hurry to slow down to enjoy them.
