365 Reasons to Smile – Day 24

My neighbor has a hibiscus bush, and I’m always amazed at how big the blossoms can get.hibiscus

I’m just as amazed at how quickly they die. Unlike flowers that last for days, the hibiscus blossoms are short-lived.

Like so many beautiful things and moments in our lives, those blossoms serve as a reminder of what we miss when we are constantly busy and hurried.

Sometimes, we really do need to take time to smell the roses, or at least the hibiscus.

And doing that always makes me smile.
