Thankful

February 12, 2010

There are many times in this hectic but wonderful life of mine, that I so long to slow down… to breathe deep and savor the moment. But all too many times as I sit enjoying the moment, I am ripped from it all too soon or I leap right on over the moment as I speed on to the next. I long for the simpler times; spent with the ones I hold dear, time spent with God, time spent creating and time dreaming. There are days when my family is going in all 4 directions that the laundry isn’t done, the dishes aren’t picked up, and messages can be written in the dust on our furniture. I need to remember that even in these hectic times that I need to savor and be thankful for each moment, for it is a gift from God. Thankful for my loving family, my wonderful friends, my warm house to come home to, plenty of food on the table, jobs to go to and time to create and dream. I am thankful today.

It seems most of us are running in all directions these days. But this year, I cut out all the extras so that I could spend my afternoons at home and that brings me much happiness. I can't say I'm doing so great in the housekeeping department, but I am home where it is quiet and I can do a I please with each moment. Those are the best times. Wishing you a wonderfully relaxing weekend. Best wishes, Tammy
