It's good to take some time off to appreciate life. It's good to take time to squeeze your kids hard and appreciate them regardless of the nonsensical talk, talk, talk. It's good to enjoy the attention grabbing of your kids because sooner than you realize they will be all-growed-up. It's time to enjoy the company of your wife after your children are asleep, either sitting in front of the boob tube or on the front porch with a glass of wine and a beer. And even while you might not think you have the perfect job, it's great to appreciate the fact that you have a job at all. Even while politics at work and on a national basis seem to be quite frustrating, it's important to appreciate we have what we have and we were born where we were born. It's good to take a deep breath, relax, and appreciate what God has given us. It's good to take some time off to appreciate life, to feel the pleasant breeze blowing in from the West, to actually hear the wind rustling through the Oak trees, to watch the sun set, and to observe as the dew sets on the grass in the dusk. It's good to take some time off to appreciate life, even if it's a span of 30 minutes before you go to work.
