What good is the future, if it's in the future?

We had such a wonderful time at the beach yesterday, the girls and I.  We have many happy times, but yesterday I was aware that I couldn't stop smiling.  The stars had aligned and it just seemed the perfect day. It wasn't planned well ahead, it wasn't expensive, it didn't take a lot of effort to make it happen.  We were just there together on a perfect day having a wonderful time.

Then last night I came across the quote What good is the future, if it's in the future? and it really resonated with me.  No excuses, no list making and planning for something months or even years from now, just being happy now, making choices today, that stimulate and excite the whole family.

The adults in this house have been frustrated about some bigger things we are not yet able to change, things that do affect our future and in many ways make us feel that that future is being held to ransom.  In reality though, we can let that go and choose only on these moments right in front of us, choose to make them amazing and the future will take care of itself.  

There are no revelations here, nothing is original, but all of us come to these thoughts in our own time and for me, that was my thought of yesterday that I'm carrying forwarding into today and dragging with me tomorrow and onwards.

such truth V… and so wonderful when it happens like this, I do wish it were so all of the time, but some days are just not meant to be, and I guess those 'lesser' days make you appreciate the days where you 'nail it' so much more. ps: lovely to see all of your big, happy, grins! xx

Beautiful post, V. I hope something good happens with G's work. I know the frustrations can be hard. Your days inspire me. They are days filled with so much love and attention to family. Thank you, V.
