My hubby and I provide Respite care for a two year old developmentally challenged little boy. His name is Taige.
(Aren't his eyelashes dreamy!) Oops, off the subject there!
Taige has a multitude of problems he lives with day to day. His care is quite complex. But he is in the moment. He deals with it all moment by moment. So do we when we care for him, but we are always jumping from moment to moment, into the future, trying to anticipate, plan for, ready ourselves for his next big moment, and then missing the actual moment. When Taige is having a good moment he is chock full of vocals, laughter and smiles. He is not off somewhere dreading the next. When he deals with a bad moment, once its over with and done, he is not wrecking his present moment by worrys of the next bad moments.
I could learn from that! I miss my own moments when my head is either in the past thinking about something or in the future worrying about something. When I am there and not here and now, I miss the moment I should be in.
So I could take this moment and wish to be in my own moments more, leaving the past where it belongs and the future in the future. Live in this moment.
That is a dream worth dreaming!
