“I hope you take time for being”

 “More than anything

I hope you take time for being

That you find yourself in the moment

breathing, living, existing

I hope you walk barefoot when you can

and that you swim in the ocean every opportunity given

I hope you always have time to pick flowers and never go too long without watching the sun rise

I hope you dance at least once every day, and cry just as often

I hope you never get too busy to read books or too old to play with children

that you see the beauty of everyday conversations over home cooked meals

and the value of people coming together.

I hope you learn to love the sound of rain

in the morning, knowing that water is as essential to life

as is air and sunshine.”
