Deep Breaths

Anxiety is on the rise.  Last night, in an effort to slow dinnertime questions and rapid-fire commentary from the kids, Mike asked everyone to take a deep breath, sit quietly and take in the smell of our dinner.   After 2.5 seconds of silence Jacqueline observed, "Cucumbers don't smell and my nose is stuffed."  Laughter makes for good medicine too.


  1. Thank goodness for the honesty of kids.

  2. It was so good to see you all yesterday. Mike, I promise to make you some more yummy fresh fruit smoothies anytime you need them! I hope your foot soaks followed by reflexology will bring some relaxation and "deep breaths" for you both. We love you all!
