Sometimes I forget to enjoy today...

I'm not sure if I'm the only one, but often times I find myself looking forward to something...

When Rachel will be potty trained.

When we can afford something on my wish-list.

When I can get my waist-line back.

When I know what the baby is.

When my husband has an extra vacation day.

When my children are more self-sufficient.

You might have more to add to the list.  And I get so caught up in looking forward that I forget to...well, look present.   

This week has especially found me in that zone - appointments at the doctor, chores needing to be done, phones dropping in dishwater, children raising a ruckus in general, realizing that Christmas is just around the corner (yikes!), and looking forward to the weekend when I can cheat on this no-sugar ridiculousness I've gotten myself into.    I find myself looking forward to some imaginary time when things will be easier and life will be simpler and forget completely to be...


I have never been more blessed than I am RIGHT NOW and if I'm not careful, I'll miss the little hugs and "I wuv you mama" and "I can do it myself!" and just the simple time when a soft blanket and their favorite stuffed animal can make all their worries go away.  

And those are things I never want to miss. 

Enjoy your day, my friends.  Enjoy what you do and have and the blessings that are in your life.  Tomorrow will be here soon enough.
