Good morning Paul. After a long career in real estate, I am now smelling the flowers. Enjoy your day!

Taking time to smell the flowers is an important thing to do in life, not to mention how wonderful the scent is.

Hi Paul... that is really so true... in the total scheme of things, however long we live, it's really a short time. And no doubt as we get older time seems to pass ever more quickly.

Paul,

That is one way to look at it.  I love smelling flowers, and I have a fragrant rose bush with so many buds about to burst open...A

Hello Paul and this quote is so true and I need to slow down a little, I was slow from May to Oct 15 and now want to catch up.

As we get older, I think we are more aware of how precious those little moments are. That's what "smelling the roses" represents.

I don't know that I ever heard of Walter Hagen before. I know the character Tom Hagen, never heard of Walter. Like the quote though
