Looking out my window this crisp January morning I am reminded, once again, that all things can be new. I know it is never to late to make something better or to try again. This January I allowed myself to be so busy planning for tomorrow that I forgot to enjoy today. I have been worrying about time and how fast things happen and the what if's. At times I think I forgot to smile or to stop and laugh.

I was reading through my journal and almost laughed at loud. My prayers from long ago seem to be the same ones I still pray today. Have I not learned anything? Am I so much like my kids who I constantly nag? Is God always having to "remind me?"

I think I know how he feels.

Well, today I am going to accept that just as the leaves have fallen off the trees there are new ones growing in. Time will continue to go on and there is nothing I can do to stop it.

But I can be in the day. I can stop missing what is going on right in front of me. I can relish in the joy of the moment ~ without being reminded!!
