I try everyday to remind myself of what is really important. Really when you think about that, it is people. Whether we are at work, home, or anywhere it is always the people that help me make memories and moments that take my breath away. I don't have the opportunity that often to spend quality time with my Lawrence Kansas family. There are two very special kids there, Sam and Haley, and then of course their parents Brad and Emily "my daughter". I know we live in a world of technology where we can phone, text, skype, and email. However, I have a lot more fun seeing those I love face to face. Children are so expressive and often times being there in person brings those cherished moments closer. Even in a work setting it is the people that stir creativity and also fill my head and mind with memories.
I am a country music fan and "The King of Country" George Strait is one of my very favorite country artists. His song "The Breath You Take" really says it all for me. It just falls so close to home for me in all aspects. We only have one chance in life to have "moments that take our breath away". I need to be looking and noticing the small things that happen for they are the most important.
I want to challenge the readers of this blog to look for moments that happen in life that take your breath away!
Please listen to them music and lyrics of the song and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
