I hope you all had a great weekend and a special Father’s Day! Unfortunately I was not able to be with my dad yesterday since he lives in Arizona, but I am thankful for a nice phone chat with him. I love you “Big Daddio”!
This weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to take our 5th and 6th grade church group to camp.
Lately I have really been focusing on living in the present. Thanks to my Type A personality and someone who always like to have a “plan”, I often find myself thinking about what’s next or what I need to get done when I’m finished with what I am currently doing. Planning can be a good thing, but it can also be a bad thing when you’re not enjoying what’s happening in the present.
I have recognized that focusing on living in the present really just calls for an attitude adjustment and some continual reminders to enjoy what I am doing and who I am with. All that other “stuff” that I find myself thinking about can wait until later. I don’t want my life to pass me by in the meantime!
I really took this to heart this weekend and tried my best to truly enjoy my time with each and every one of my little 5th and 6th graders. I love their never ending energy, constant goofiness, and love for life – it is so refreshing.
Of course there was the fluke 4 AM fire alarm that went off in our lodge, and the many gardener snakes the kiddos “demanded” that I pet that made it all the more interesting, but what is camp without all of that?
I came home yesterday looking forward to spending some time with my husband (I missed him!), ordering pizza in, and going to bed early!
P.S. I am slowly but surely trying to catch up with my inbox these days, so don’t think I forgot about you!

- Do you find yourself having a difficult time living in the present?
- How do you ensure you are living in the present?
