Being present...

that's my goal today. :)

This morning, as I was packing lunches, filling water bottles, unloading the dishwasher, making scrambled eggs, and thinking about all the proofing and laundry I have to do today, it suddenly occurred to me...

I couldn't remember SMILING at the kids this morning.

How can it be that I can say good morning and wake up our wonderful kids, and FORGET to smile?

It's just not right. And it's time to wake up, smile, and get going on an awesome day. I am missing bible study this morning because the roofing guy had to come to see if we needed a new roof because of the freak HAIL storm we had a few months ago. And I am proofing. And listening to Christmas music. And being thankful for our life. And smiling.

So glad to hear that.(Focusing on being in the present.) I sometimes do the same. SMILING, that's good.
Oh yeah, saw some cute brown fingerless glove/mittens at Old Navy. Not sure if you have found any yet. :) JW
