Enjoying the moment...

That's what I'm doing today...
enjoying the moment.
God has been speaking to me alot about patience.
About living each day to the fullest.

That no longer means seeing how much
I can cram into 24 hours.

So today I'm savoring "winter".
When I was younger I was always in a hurry.
A hurry to "be done" with whatever I was going through.

Just wait till the kids get older.
Just wait till I get a bigger house.
Just wait till we can afford this or that.
Just wait till I have the time.

I love the change of seasons,
but I don't want to forget which one I'm in.

Spring will be here before we know it.
Then summer, and we will all be
sweating and fussing about the heat!

So today I'm enjoying "winter".

And being home, and sitting here
with a large gray cat
asleep in my lap.

Listening to the birds outside my window,
and watching her ears twitch
every now and again as her little
brain recognizes a familiar sound.

(I'm still enjoying my "New Year's tree".)

Different seasons reflect different moods,
and times in our life.
Don't miss out on what is right in front of you
because you may be in search of what's next.

Enjoy the moment.

Today I found this wonderful German die-cut calendar,
while I was searching for Valentines.
I had to stop and share this with all of you.

Have a wonderful winter day!
