Living Graciously, Artfully, Frugally.

Consciously taking notice of the gifts each day places in our path.

“I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.” R. W. Emerson

Time has gotten away from me.

The days fly so swiftly we barely notice their passage.

Moments so ephemeral we can barely grasp them.

All the wishing that time will stop and let us catch up is just that...a wish...
whispered on the wind and off it flies.

We must make a conscious effort to live in the moment.

Time will not wait for us.
Let us make the most of it when we can.

My temp job is over and I have my life back for a bit.
I intend to make the most of these free bits of time.
I have hopes and plans.
As a friend's dear mother used to say
"Wishin' ain't gettin'."
Let's make our dreams happen.
Join me.

Yours in making the most of our days, P.

Pin It!

The older we get we have to make that decision to consciously live in the moment. We know we can never get it back and time goes too fast. I know you just said all that too, but it is something I think about more and more. I see my grandchildren getting older much too fast....that's scary. It's the simple things in life we have to enjoy. Hope you are taking the time today to enjoy the warmth of the sunshine on your shoulders. ~Hugs, Patti

Words so true. I try to catch it but time constantly escapes me. I have fun along the way though ... M x
