OK, call me frugal. I am a squeezer of toothpaste tubes, a scraper of peanut butter jars,…I hate to waste. But I’ve noticed other family members add items to the grocery list when they are still half full. 😉
Sometimes we approach life that way. We can get so busy planning tomorrows, we waste the joy of the moments and the people that are right in front of us. In helping Morgan deal with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), I often find myself literally doing a song and dance to pull her out of whatever she’s obsessing on and into the present. The plus side is that it’s teaching me to be fully present, to recognize when tomorrow’s busyness and worries are trying to steal my now.
Here’s to squeezing every last drop out of the day with the ones we love. Right here, right now, even if it takes a little fancy footwork.
Until Next Time,
Know The Hope
