Words from the dying: Slow down and treasure the little moments

Words of advice from those on their death beds who wish they had slowed down and enjoyed life a little more:
They want us to focus less on the big picture of building a large body of evidence that proves our accomplishments, and more on the true wonders in our life — the kind where we find unexpected beauty that will be remembered with a wistful smile.

Like walking with your child alongside you, going somewhere without purpose. Or waiting patiently while five- and six-year-old children choose, change their minds, choose, and then change their minds again, about the root-beer-flavored or the banana-flavored popsicles.
Adds more meaning to the phrase, "Stop and smell the roses."
