Daily Gratitude Year 5- Day 114: Today, I will choose to be grateful for the "now".
Today is a Monday in front of another full weekend.
I need the reminder to pause; gratitude for this day is not enough, it is a precious part of the gift.
The "nows" of the weekend included: time with friends who are family, time with lifetime friends and an old neighbor who became a friend for life. Add in two family birthdays, two bridal showers to celebrate love chosen, time with sons by birth and in love, a date with my husband and some of my favorite men and Anna, a long wait for dinner meant time to really catch up and a wee bit of playing with pictures. The weekend went so fast, but it was rich in "nows".
Now, on the precipice of a new week, I want to intentionally take in moments. I do not want to lust for the future, but to live life fully on this day. To live in full gratitude for each moment . Not just grateful for the gift, but in the gift.
Today, I will choose to be grateful for the "now ".
