Living "IN THE MOMENT."
Stop what you're doing, and just be in the moment! It's hard isn't it? This is something I struggle with several times a day. But the laundry, and the dishes, and the floors and I have schoolwork to organize and dinner to cook....! "Shhhhhhhh!" I have to tell myself to BE QUIET! I will never have this time, and these moments with my children again. Yeah, just let that one sink in. Depressing, isn't it? As excited as I am to see them learning and growing into little people, I can't help but get a little sad at the ages and stages that are GONE! Okay, enough of that! As I mentioned, this is VERY hard for me. I have trouble stopping...whatever it is that seems SOOOO important, and listening to and interacting with my kids. Working on it. Along with several other areas related to this. Not yelling or losing my patience, using wisdom and responding in love, not being complacent. The list goes on and on. Lord help me! Just a quick reminder (to me)...you're kids NEED you right now! Enjoy them. Tiffany (taffygrinch)
