Take the time to tell loved ones how much you care.

Enjoy the beauty of each new day,it was made just for you.

Sipping the first cup of coffee on a spring morning.

The morning chaos for school only lasts a short time.

Make the most out of the afternoon, walking the dog and kids (oops).

Planting a special garden the kids can take care of.

Enjoying the fruits of your labor.

Roasting hot dogs outside over an open fire.

Do the chicken dance as a family.

Try not to take life to serious, enjoy the small mistakes and laugh.

It is amazing how fast the children grow up and leave the nest.

Some parents enjoy the beauty of grandchildren and sleep overs.

Going fishing with grandpa and learning how to clean the catch.

Fly a kite at the beach.

At the end of the day, thank god for your blessings.

Life is too short to live in chaos.
