When people think of happiness; being busy, hurried, distracted, surrounded by deafening white noise is not typically part of the picture.Rather, it’s a day where time appears to moves slower, senses are acutely focused on the lightest of sounds and movements, the mind and spirit is quiet and relaxed.
Happiness often includes having the ones you love the most being by your side. Sharing and enjoying the simplest moments found in good conversation and time together.
This is the essence of why Dulci Sweets came into being. Our purpose is clear - to serve as a reminder of life's most precious treasures and to create avenues for celebrating them.To remember the good times and to continue creating them. To celebrate others and express gratefulness for the relationships we are so fortunate to have.
After all, the days and years move fast. This world is operating at warp speed. And if we are not intentional with these things, the world has a way of running us over and snatching it from us.
One of those moments that I recall as I write this is eating watermelon on the front porch stoop with my Grandpa many years ago. I vividly remember the tin dish grandma would put the watermelon in and grandpa had us spit the seeds into. Of course, there was a technique to spitting the seeds out correctly, and Grandpa was a pro. It was a common treat after dinner. The sun beginning to descend and the conversations we shared together.
Nowadays, it’s times eating dinner together as a family. No phones, no iPads, no tv, all electronics removed from reach and distraction.
The simple and good times spent. Family traditions, sweet recipes, genuine interaction, joyful conversations. It's about the heart, the home, the preciousness of time, and the boundless love we share.
Where people, and experiences in that very moment, is what gets your full attention.
I hope just reading that makes you stop for a moment, take a deep breath, and smile.
Gosh, that feels good, right?
Encouraging us all to enjoy the small and simple moments that make life sweet and beautiful.
P.S. I’d love it if you would share with me the ‘sweet’ moment that popped in your mind as you read this.Your smile is a treasure, and we'd love to hear your story.
