stop and smell

I so love ranunculus flowers.
They are soft and delicate and elegant.
They astound me with their beauty.
Lately, life has been so busy.
I haven't taken time to stop and smell the flowers.
When I brought these beauties home from the store,
I realized I needed to pause and appreciate the loveliness of nature.
Thank you sweet flowers for making me slow down and stop and smell
and reflect on the beauty found in everyday life.
