Saturday Sparks Link Party 235

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 235!

The start of another September finds me reflecting on days gone by.

My children are grown now, but it was not so long ago that the slow and easy feel of summer was snatched from us and replaced with new routines and hectic schedules - aka the start of another school year.

The abrupt change never sat well with me.

Over time, I have learned to savor the simple moments and the occasional stillness of a day and it was this tried and true habit that saved me during those busy days of yesteryear.

"In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you."
~ Deepak Chopra
