The trick is...

 
 

It's all too easy to get caught up waiting for the next big blessing. If I wasn't married, I'd be longing for marriage. If I didn't have a job that I loved, I'd be longing for that. It's easier said than done to enjoy the present moment, but I think I'm getting better at it. A wise friend once encouraged me to imagine I would wake up tomorrow with only what I thanked God for today. This exercise really helped put things into perspective for me. There is so much I have to be grateful for today and I want to enjoy those things while I have the chance. I know I'm not promised tomorrow.

  1. Amen. Not always easy to do, but absolutely necessary. I hear of mothers with young children longing for a night of sleep... The point being that if you don't learn to embrace life where you are, there will always be something that will be difficult that will make you wish for easier days.
