Respite: A short interval of rest or relief

“Let us be grateful
to the people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners
who make our souls blossom.”
-Marcel Proust

When we move into times filled with numerous responsibilities – some desired, others dreaded – let’s remember to celebrate those who have brought a smile to our face.

Let’s remember to thank them for bringing us joy and also remember to be someone who brings joy to others so that one day, it may be said of us – that person was a “charming gardener who made my soul blossom!”
