March 2015 Minutes for Moms

Message from the President

With spring just around the corner, I recently gave thought to the phrase "stop and smell the roses". My husband surprised me with beautiful peach roses recently and as I leaned over to smell them I chuckled and thought "Haha- I am stopping to smell the roses!" But as I stood there admiring them, inhaling their fragrant scent, looking at all the intricate layers, it made me give more thought to this saying. It's a phrase that we have all heard a million times throughout our life. But as I get older and life seems to get busier, it has a bit of a different meaning. We tend to get so caught up in the day to day tasks that sometimes we forget to take a few minutes and take in everything around us. I know I am especially guilty of this. There are so many things that need to get done- some days it just seems like we are running from one thing to the next. It seems like everyday is busy and we want to make it as successful as we can. Sometimes though we should take a few minutes in our day to side step away from the hustle and bustle, take a deep breath and appreciate all that is around us. So I encourage you the next time you are watching the kids play, taking a walk in the neighborhood, going to the park, or sitting down in the evening for a few minutes after the kids go to bed, take a moment or two to pause and appreciate the beauty and blessings that surround you. And, if you come across a few flowers along the way, be sure to take a deep breath and inhale their beautiful scent!

In February, despite the very cold weather and snowy conditions we were able to get out and enjoy some fun events. We went to the Little Pod, open gym at Central Bucks Gymnastics and at High Performance Gymnastics, a Members Social at the Doylestown Library and a great moms night out at Bacco Bistro. Looking forward to the events in March!
