Living with Intention

Have you seen this yet?  Oh. my. GOODNESS.  It makes me smile and cry at the same time. 

On the smiley side, it makes me grateful to be homeschooling,

    to be choosing more time with my kids,

         to be looking at things a bit differently,

                 to be thankful for the many gifts in my life. 

On the tearful side, it makes me hungry.

    Hungry to do more by doing less,

          to slow down,

                  to seek the gratitude not just in the obvious gifts,

                             but also in mundane.  

To live intentionally, and savour




of this amazing gift of life,

                                                                       as fleeting as it is.  

The best gift is yet to come.
