Saturday Sparks Link Party 182

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 182!

School is back in session.

In the blink of an eye, the carefree days of summer are being replaced with routines and schedules.

When life gets busy, we sometimes forget to breathe.

My children are grown now, but I well remember these days.

If I could offer one piece of advice, it would be to find some stillness amidst the chaos of the day.

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."
~ Winston Churchill
