It took me the better part of 40 years to learn to live in the moment and appreciate the blessings of each day; to enjoy today while it happened. I’ve been thinking of that quite a bit lately, as the days of September slip by one by one. This year, I’m more determined than ever to enjoy each day, aware that big changes are coming my way. Those changes are exciting; even welcome. But things will be different at this time next year. So I enjoy today.
The dogwood, inching its way to a lovely display of red leaves, is a reminder to stop and admire the beauty of these days. And so I step outside each morning to watch the sun slip over the horizon to light my morning and the dogwood leaves. And I welcome all that the day brings.
