You are so right Joanne. However, it is something I have such a hard time doing. I am always worrying about what's too come, not living in the present. Thank you for reminding us how important it is to "be in the moment".

I hate, hate, hate, hate, hate that about Target (and every other store)! Drives me nuts, nuts, nuts. Especially when I don't think to look for a bathing suit until May and it's too late!

I'm so with you on the living in the moment! We're going to the pool in 10 minutes even though Nina wears me out whenever we go. But my "moment" includes a 17-month-old right now, and I'm going to suck it up and soak it up!

Love you!


I had the same frustration yesterday. Yankee Candle Company has put all their summer candles on sale and all the fall candles are out on the shelves. I love fall, but i felt like it was cramping my space and shortening my summer!


Augh! also my pet peeve. " So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts to wisdom, " Psalm 90:12. That verse was the devotion in my prayer book last week and very timely! Janine
