Stop and Smell The Roses

,

When I was a kid, I loved this song by Mac Davis, so I am including it below. Do you know it? I feel as if it’s a timeless reminder to all of us…

Since we’re coming into the hustle and bustle of the holidays and people are feeling stressed, let’s slow down a bit. I have talked about simplicity in life and how precious it is to count your blessings, be in the moment and act mindfully. But I think it bears repeating…so I’ve included the lyrics for you to enjoy!

Take a moment to sing along and then take these lyrics to heart in your everyday life!

Hey Mister
Where you going in such a hurry
Don’t you think it’s time you realized
There’s a whole lot more to life than work and worry
The sweetest things in life are free
And there right before your eyes

You got to Stop and Smell the roses
You’ve got to count your many blessings everyday
You’re gonna find your way to Heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don’t Stop and Smell the roses along the way

Before you went to work this morning in the city 
Did you spent some time with your family
Did you kiss your wife and tell her that she’s pretty
Did you take your children to your breast and love them tenderly

You got to Stop and Smell the roses
You’ve got to count your many blessings everyday
You’re gonna find your way to Heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don’t Stop and Smell the roses along the way

Did you ever take a walk through the forest
Stop and dream awhile among the trees
Well you can look up through the leaves right straight to Heaven
You can almost hear the voice of God
In each any every breeze

You got to Stop and Smell the Roses
You’ve got to count your many blessings everyday
You’re gonna find your way to Heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don’t Stop and Smell the Roses along the way

You got to Stop and Smell the roses
You’ve got to count your many blessings everyday
You’re gonna find your way to Heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don’t Stop and Smell the roses along the way.
