Smell the roses

This last week has been one of the most difficult weeks of our lives due to some family circumstances beyond our control. Today I decided to take the Subaru to work. I opened the sunroof, put on Jack Johnson, and enjoyed the drive. I must have looked silly with a giant grin on my face, but it was such a wonderful experience.

Particularly when we are in crisis it's all too easy to allow that to become all consuming, and yet these are the times when it is more important than ever to stop and smell the roses, or in my case, enjoy the drive...

This is exactly what I did this morning after taking J. to school! StellarKart, the sunrise, and breathtaking mountains. He lives.
