Happy JULY!!

I am finding it hard to believe that it's already JULY 2008. Time truly begins to pass so fast when you have kids... is that because we don't get much sleep? Or that the days just melt into each other when the never ending "to do " list. We as moms are always planning the next day, week, month.... and then you look up and the year is more than half way gone!?!? Crazy.
We need to take those deep breaths and reflect every few days... remembering the HERE and NOW... not hurrying the next weeks. Maybe that's why time goes to fast? We're already planning out the weeks and months ahead. Let's JUST STOP and SMELL those ROSES. Life is to be cherished and enjoyed... not hurried along. Of course it's OK to be prepared and have an outline...but let's not lose sight of each day be letting our calendar control our focus of TODAY.
Enjoy each one as it is a blessing from our FATHER.
"This is the day which the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24

Love on your family this holiday week-end, and ENJOY your time with them. Our days are numbered... let's just take them one at a time.

Move it this week-end...always a great time for a walk.

Maybe you should do a "Take a Deep Breath Tuesday" post each week with a quote, scripture, or some type of inspiration for us to remember to cherish each day? Or Cherish the Moment Monday...or...Where Has The Time Gone Wednesday...or...just kidding!!! No, really you should do something like that. It would be perfectly matched with your Motivating Mommies mantra:) Or maybe Don't Forget Fridays? ha!
