Right here, right now...

... watching the woooooorld wake up from his-tory.

Wait, what?

Never mind.

I'm going to go ahead and put it out there that I'm usually pretty good about living in and being thankful for whatever season of life I'm in.  I don't have a whole lot of talents, but I really am decently capable of living in the moment.  It isn't that I never get ridiculously impatient for the future.  Or that I don't often look back on the past with fondness and shamelessly wish things were the same now as they were then.

Case in point:

Someone shoot me for ever thinking that my then-completely flat stomach was anything other than completely flat.  (However, you really can't blame me for feeling pudgy compared to Miss Six-Pack next to me.  My best friend's body is still this banging, and she's had two kids.  Lauren, you're lucky I love you, or I'd completely hate you. :))

Moving on...

My point is that I'm usually content.

It seems like the last week or so, though, I've been anxious and antsy, and work has been crazy, and I haven't spent nearly enough time with Gracie, and the house is a disaster, and my hair needs coloring, and I'm pretty much just a hot mess.

But man, y'all.  I'm trying to force myself to remember to enjoy this season in my life.  Things are crazy, yes.  But I know that one day, when Micah and I are old and gray, we're going to look back on this time and wish with all of our might that we could be back in this place.  

Because things really are so good.  

Right here and right now.

Oh boy, I have a super hard time living in the moment, so I understand! But its good to stop and remember, esp with that sweet baby girl!

Belly button rings and everything! I'm like you, very good at living in the moment. It definitely is a talent! Chalk it up to an off week. Happy Monday! This week is a clean slate.

Yep! It's so hard not to think "man! I can't wait until Gracie can walk!" Or "we have another baby!" Or in my case "the kids go to school!!!" But I'm right there with you trying to savor every minute because it all really does fly by.

It will be a constant battle! You will work through this and it will get back to being good! Figuring out new routines and schedules are hard - and with kids things are always changing!
