Last night I was dead tired that I crawled into bed and found the perfect position at 9:30. Then BOOM…I was wide awake!  My mind wanted to think about anything and everything, mostly about the tasks that I wanted to complete today with the list getting longer and longer.  Then suddenly I started to tell myself that tomorrow doesn’t matter, but right here, right now matters the most.

This is one of my faults, always looking towards the future thinking about the next moment and forgetting about enjoying the moment I’m living in right now, so I told myself to write a blog post the next morning about all the things I need to enjoy right now:

The sound of my husbands heart beat, it is one of the sweetest sounds to my ear letting me know he is alive and healthy.

A job that makes me jump out of bed each morning! Seriously, I never thought it would happen to me.  I’m a very lucky girl.

That my family is still together, that we get along so well now that we’re older and a whole lot wiser – family dinners are such an awesome time.

That this time in my life is a time of happy moments, a time of reflection of God’s answered prayers, of easy living, and a time to prepare me for when the rough patches arrive – cause I know we’ll hit one eventually.

The peace and clarity that I live in…it’s something I’ve prayed for and it’s such a wonderful feeling to have.

That I’m alive and healthy and can make plans for tomorrow, because I know it’s going to be an awesome year!

Take a moment to reflect – believe me, it will bring a smile to your face. 🙂
