03 November 2011
Hello Moms! How are you? It is November, can you believe it? I really can't. It seems, the older I get, that things just get faster and faster. There is just not enough time between important events. It's getting closer to Thanksgiving, and it seems, as things get faster, that I have more and more to be thankful for. I have to keep reminding myself to savor and enjoy it. Because with the faster time, it seems I get less done than I used to, so there is ALWAYS something to do, and that means I usually rushing and not savoring. I don't have a solution for this yet, but I WILL keep looking for ways to appreciate the myriad of things I have to be thankful for. I think, this November, that I am going to stop trying to be like everyone else, and stop doing what everyone else is doing. I am going to do what I do. I am going to look around to appreciate who is here with me. I will still do dishes and laundry, pick up toys, teach the kids, and exercise, etc. But, during those things, I will try to savor who is with me and what I am doing. Lord, please give me the perceptiveness to see the people around me, to stop rushing and comparing, and love them with all the love and patience you give me! Thank you God for the many blessings I have. Please help me to use them wisely and to treasure you and my loved ones. Thank you for loving me no matter what! Thanks for November 2011. Help me be here and now, not looking ahead or behind.
