Hey friends!! Is it Almost Monday again!??
Tonight at church my small group ended up talking about how quickly time fly's . A subject that we all know well!! One of My girls was talking about how she sometimes wishes that her birthday didn't come , because that meant she was another year older another day closer to growing up, (shes 15) she's a year closer to losing someone she loves, or she' her self dying. She said she wasn't ready to leave, she had way to much she wanted to do. I know this sounds a bit morbid , but getting insight from a 15 year old really stops an makes you think. I remember when I was younger I use to be scared to death thinking that my grandparents where not always going to be there, and couldn't fathom not having my mom or dad! I think that as we get older we don't think of things like this as often, at least I don't.
What I do worry about is not enjoying the now, Lately I have been living for the weekends. Simply because that means I get to spend every second with my family. Tonight she really got me thinking, that I need to start enjoying everyday even the ugly parts, maybe not enjoy but embrace, After all, the ugly parts help to shape us to who we are. But how? How do I embrace the mundane that is my everyday? This I have to learn! For now Ill just pray that, and try to intently enjoy the now!
Now!!!!!!! Jon and I went on a date last night!!!! WHAT WHAT!!!! the first one since my birthday, that was December! It was LOOOONG over due! I was a bit lost with out the lil man, but it was really nice to hold Jon's hand and to laugh with him, without having to worry what Landon was doing. Being able to sit down and enjoy a dinner without having to get up, I almost didn't know what to do with myself. Needless to say we missed that baby and decided that date night needed to happen more often!
I hope everyone had a great weekend!!! Here's to intently enjoying the now!!!
