Breathe

Spring always gives me the gift of grattitude for the abundance of life. The warmer weather gets me outside more often to just take a depth breath and enjoy the fresh spring air and the lovely sounds of the many feathered friends that come and make their home here. It is such a wonderful feeling to breathe. So often life gets to that busy place for me that I catch myself forgetting the importance of taking full breaths. It seems like such a simple thing to do, but I am guilty of being a shallow breather. So I encourage all of you to stop for a moment, kick off your shoes and enjoy this simple pleasure! Life is to short not to breathe in the joy and find some comfort in the every day abundance that surrounds us.

Spring is a beautiful season. I am also a shallow breather. Today I will make a definite effort to stop and breathe, even if its just for a second :)

Right now I am listening to the crickets and then in the morning bird singing matting songs . But one thing I do miss about the living in the desert is no spring peepers. julie
