"Very often in our anxiousness for the joys of the future we run away from the very things we are wanting and needing today.An appropriate examination of the passing moment will prove it leads to eternity. We need to constantly remind ourselves eternity is in process now."--Marvin J. Ashton
This is SO TRUE. I find myself looking back and saying, "if only I would have..." and I used to, but not so much now, say I can't wait till..." when I need to look at the now and cherish every second of it! I blinked and my babies are grown and I'm a grandma now. As I watch Addy with her grampa I see him all over again with our daughter Kersti and miss those times so much but I am savoring every second with Addy because I know this will pass too quickly. I also find I laugh at Addy's parents when she's naughty and they are frustrated or exassperated with her, because now it's payback. Our families are too precious!!! Go and hug them now, stop reading this, GO! Give them a hug for me too!
