Traveler On the Backroads

LIFE HAPPENS IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE,HERE ONE MOMENT GONE THE NEXT.CHILDREN LIVE in the moment. They get right up Close and Personal with their surroundings and they interact with them: chasing butterflies, picking up leaves and rocks, hugging every creature they meet and then begging to bring it home. Busy living life, experiencing it..THESE are the Miracles that Light my Day, the small wonders, the ordinary miracles that we too often take for granted as we try to pay the mortgage and other bills, as we scramble to fulfill our obligations and responsibilities..CONFIDENT that these Little Miracles will always be there, waiting for us with open arms, a twinkle in their eye, a big broad smile lighting up their face, so happy to see us, elated we’re home. And they will greet us this way, til one day when they have obligations and responsibilities and mortgages to pay and little ones of their own..SOMEHOW, some way, we have to learn from our children and grandchildren, somehow we must Remember how to Live in the Moment the way they do, the way we once did before less important things stole our time, tricking us into believing that anything could be more important than the moments shared with our children and grandchildren and other loved ones..TIME won’t wait for us. Neither will those precious moments we take for granted, we so cherish. It’s simple: Life is what happens, while we’re busy making other plans..AND IT PASSES BY SO FAST, SO VERY VERY FAST ….BECAUSE it passes so fast,I Choose to Live It Right Here and Now … …. While It’s Right Here In Front of Me ❄☃💓.~
