There have been many moments in my life that I wished for time to stand still. Then there are times I have wished to go back in time or to step into the future. Sometimes it is truly a struggle to live in the present; to be completely present both mentally and physically and enjoy each and every minute of each day. There is great wisdom in the scripture Ecclesiastes 3:1. To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
I have enjoyed each season of my life, and I am enjoying the present one. I sometimes wish for the days when my girls were little. They seemed to need me more and were easier to please, yet I am proud of their independance and the good choices they make. I long for the days when my dad was still with us and yet I look to the future when we'll be reunited. I calendar in weekends, holidays, summers, and special events to keep looking forward to certain times. It helps me stay focused on the present until it is time for quality time with family and friends. There are many hobbies, interests, and talents I'd like to pursue someday....but for now, I'm going to enjoy this season of my life and make the most of it with no regrets! Family---it's about time!!
