For weeks, I have been waiting for June 10th. I’m attending my niece’s wedding. The 10th has come and now I am waiting for my plane.

It seems like I am always waiting for something. Test results. Moving Day. Summer. As soon as whatever it is arrives, I start waiting for the next thing. I wonder if I am living fully in the moment right now, or if I have one foot in this day and the other in the next. Am I missing out on nuances and details that are important? Am I missing memories?

I have a grand opportunity this weekend to make the most of each moment. . . To be present with those I love and who love me. I want to live with intention, not just watch the days blur into oblivion.

Above all, I want to give praise and glory to the author of each of these moments. Grant me clarity of mind and joy in the journey. Amen.

I'm a homeschool mom and the proud wife of a hard working farmer. We live in the sticks and drive 20 miles to a town of any size. I live to serve the One who saved my soul, and He daily loads me with blessings. I started this blog to share my journey through breast cancer. So far, I have only done a few warm up stretches, and I pray I will remain faithful and be an encouragement to others traveling this road with me. I know this journey will be rough, but I also know it will be perfect, because my God does all things well. I am not afraid.
