Embracing Today

I really do embrace every season. It seems we often spend more time waiting for or talking about the next season than really savoring the gifts of the current one. Soon it will be summer, and we'll be complaining about how hot it is... We'll be wishing for an icy, cool breeze to take us away from the sizzling, sweltering heat. We'll begin talking about how nice it will be to wear sweaters again.

How much time do we really spend here today?
Right now--in this precious moment.

Yesterday Superman took me for a winter walk. I had a doctor visit that was quite a distance away so to help me cope with the traffic [and my tired foot from helping him brake on my side of the car] he broke up the trip with a glorious reminder of the beauty in "today".

I am OK...
I can find my center and remember how to be here now.
My joy to be alive is bigger than my fear of being in a car.

And a great winter hat is always a reminder why I have every reason to smile.
This hat goes great with a pair of monkey pantz.


  1. What a joy to take a walk through snow and winter, years since last I saw such white with me own eyes.

    Thank you for this small escape.

    Please have you all a wonderful start into the weekend.

  2. It's true; we forget to live in the moment. Thanks for the reminder not to wish my life away!

  3. That was just lovely... And I like your ears!!

    Have a fabulous weekend! :)

  4. Aww you're too cute by half! How did the Dr appt. go?

  5. Looks like you had a great time out in the snow. Its nice to see you smiling. =o)

  6. you really are right about living in the now... I get so caught up in "I can't wait for..." I end up wishing my life away. What a lovely winter walk with you. I hope your doctors appointment went well.

    I laughed out loud when I read the part about helping superman brake in the car... I used to do the same thing. It is so bad that now I just have to look out my window and pray we make there alive instead of looking out the windshield. Have a fantastic weekend! ~Jaime

  7. Very Cute Blog Lily! I have a Lily of my own (she's 8)...I love the woodstock pic of you and your cool! Namaste!

  8. Cool hat!! That first picture is rather spooky - reminds me of a Stephen King story about alien abduction (!) Beam me up Scottie...

  9. I love the hat! It reminds me of the Max costume from 'Where The Wild Things Are'

  10. No wonder you call him Superman! He is pretty special.

    All your hats should have little furry ears. They look good on you!

  11. Awwwww, so glad to see that you are OK. You've been quiet on FB and I was beginning to worry. You look all cozy and warm against the snowy weather and I'm glad Superman is looking after you well.

    How did your visit to the doc go? How are you feeling? Keep smiling sweetheart - your smile is so catching :)
