"Enjoy this Moment"
This statement hit me square on the forehead.
Like a crazy snowball hard enough to throw, then PUFF it explodes and covers me with tingling frozen water....
All I could think about was everything that I had to do.
Everything that had to get done.
All of the places that the kids needed to go.
I looked up.
I had already missed the sunrise.
I had barely noticed the spring birds morning sing song.
I had pet the dog absent-mindedly
I had actually wished the day over, that's when I realized that I was already missing so much of it... and it made me sit up straight. It made me realize that if I wasn't careful, I'd miss the best parts.
The cherished moments.
(pause to enjoy a sip of coffee)
I'm going to go wake up the kids now....
Enjoy this moment. Make today amazing.
