My goal this week is to remain present with the children as we do school, chores, errands, etc. The simple activities of the day can provide so many opportunities to deepen our relationship with one another, and I am sad to say, I often miss these opportunities because I am planning, worrying, getting ready for something yet to be.
While I do need to prepare for the race, I am going to leave my focus on the present. It's all I have. That saying, tomorrow may not come, is so true, and what good is my life if all I have ever done is looked ahead to the moments I "think" I may have the privilege of living rather than embracing the ones I am given every minute of the day?
Simple Mom is a favorite blog of mine and her post today could not have come at a better time for me. While she and I are going through different scenarios of life, the sentiment is the same. The grass is greener where you water it.
