While rushing back from a potty break during our time at Costco, Dakota yelled out to me “Mommy, can I smell the flowers??!!” At first I told her no because I wanted to get back to daddy and the girls to finish our shopping, it was closing time. She again asked me “Please, can I smell the flowers?!” then it hit me. What am I doing? Why am I always in such a rush? She reminded me that night to stop and enjoy the beauty around me, yes, even inside Costco. Also to pay attention to my child who already has the heart to notice and allow her the moment to do so.
My sweet Dakota… thank you for your innocent loving heart and for reminding me to stop and smell the flowers. Such a simple moment but it was a beautiful one we enjoyed together.
All my heart,
