I love summer.
Sometimes in the hustle of working and being a Mom I forget.
I let the chaos absorb me. I find myself hurrying through the days, spending more energy thinking about the next thing. The calendar. The next place.
Today, I took a walk with my family and in the middle of the walk, somewhere between the pumpkin patch and the Beaver pond, I realized that this moment was important. The sky was fading to purple in the late summer sun.
My kids were laughing. I was holding my husbands hand. Flowers were blooming along the path.
It was beautiful, I was happy, life was good. I walked and I was now, I was present.
I just breathed. I soaked it in. I thought about what I was grateful for. My mind was clear and in the twilight I could really see the people around me.
Slow down. Enjoy a moment. Not every moment is enjoyable. So, I was glad the universe reminded me to savor one.
