Recipes for the Soul - \"Don\'t Let It Melt Away\"
\"Enjoy your ice cream while it\'s on your plate - that\'s my philosophy.\" - Thorton Wilder
We all know that ice cream melts if we don\'t eat it right away. It turns to a puddle on our plate. In life, there are many delicious \"ice cream\" moments, but we get so distracted, we miss them. We\'re too busy planning for tomorrow that we forget to taste what\'s on our plate today. Enjoy the pleasure of each moment before it slips away.
Simple Steps ...
* Enjoy what\'s on y our plate. Savor each precicous moment as it occurs, taking time to notice the unique sights, sounds, textures or scents. The more we fully enjoy these experiences, the longer they last in our memory.
* Kids grow up so fast. make time fo a daily \"one-on-one\" with your children now. Play, read, talk, listen, laugh and relish your time together.
