A Constant Reminder

Every time I stand at the kitchen sink, I am greeted by this daffodil bulb. It amazes me every day. I took a bulb, ugly, layer-y and dormant, gave it some water and am watching it grow. There is a single word on a stick. Simplify. A constant reminder. I dont need "stuff". I dont need to be doing things constantly. Simplify. Read a book. Cook a meal from scratch. Watch a flower grow from a single bulb. Simplify. Love the Lord. Love my husband. Love my family and friends. Notice how the flower faces the sun. All I really need, is my family, God and a little sunshine. Simplify. Somehow I forget to slow down. And this flower reminds me. Its a constant reminder.
