Weekly Mothering Challenge: Stop and Smell the Roses

There are some beautiful roses in bloom around our neighborhood and it got me to thinking that I should really aim to stop and smell the roses more -- both literally and figuratively.

I find I can easily get caught up in the everyday *dailyness* of mothering and sometimes forget to stop and savor the moment...a beautiful, simple, magical moment to cherish with my children.

So this week's challenge is to seek out these beautiful moments among the busyness of our days, sniff them in, and find joy in the simple.
