Be Present

January 29, 2008

That's what I'm trying to do these days...be present. Live in the now, don't worry about tomorrow, cherish everyday moments. It's something I've never been good at. I'm a planner, an organizer, a doer. I like to get things done so I can look back on my day and say, "yeah, I accomplished a lot". But really, work as a mom is never done, as soon as you finish laundry there's a pair of socks in the basket, as soon as you're done doing dishes from dinner there's an ice cream bowl in the sink, and as soon as you vacuum the floor graham cracker crumbs appear out of nowhere......our work is never done. So why miss out on times like these...




...when a clean house is fleeting, but memories are forever.

i agree, the work of a mother is never ending and it seems the kiddos grow up so fast! i have to remind myself almost daily that the laundry and the cleaning will be there for me to do another time but the memories the girls are making at that moment go so quickly. it's so hard to do sometimes! very cute pictures!
