A Thousand Words

Posted on

The girls and I stopped at Redbox to rent some movies and we picked Eddie Murphy’s “A thousand words”. In a nutshell Eddie’s character Jack finds that his life is linked with a tree. With each word spoken by Jack, a leaf would fall off of the tree. He had 1,000 words (leaves) left….. I won’t tell you anything more about the story line so I don’t ruin the movie but the big message to take away was that you need to appreciate every moment you’re given. That words aren’t always enough and that the little things count.

With all of the comings and goings in our everyday lives, we sometimes forget to push “pause” on life to stop an smell the roses. Now I don’t imagine that we’re all going to stop what we’re doing to find a rosebush or run to the floral department to smell a bouquet but instead of everyone parked in front of the TV zoned out on some reality show, go outside and run through the sprinklers or see what sorts of shapes you can find in the clouds. Turn off the TV and put away all electronics at dinner time and spend those precious moments finding out how one another’s day went, pull out a board game from the closet and have the whole family participate. Anything you can do to carve out that special uninterrupted time with one another will make you appreciate one another so much more.

In other words, allow yourself to be a child for a couple of hours… I mean don’t we spend enough time being adults?

About tinazeien

A little about me….. I’ve worked in healthcare a little over 18 years, 5 ½ of those years working with midwives. I love being involved with families that are expecting an addition to their family! Currently I am in school working towards getting my nursing degree so I can work in labor and delivery. From there I might go into OB ultrasonography. The whole pregnancy and child birth experience is so amazing I’m finding it hard to decide exactly what I want to be when I grow up! ☺ When I’m not working or putting my nose into text books, I spend as much time as I can with my daughters who are 14 & 18 years old (teenagers are quite an adventure!) I also enjoy spending time with friends and family. As I’m sure you’ve noticed by my weekly recipes, one of my biggest passions is to cook! I love spending my weekends finding new recipes to experiment with and playing hostess at my home. Most of the recipes I am going to try to post here are on the healthier side or geared towards vegetarians but I’ll also be sneaking in a few deserts here and there…. We all need a little decadence once in a while right?! I look forward to hearing if you have enjoyed these recipes as much as my family has! Bon Appétit ☺
