Moments

I was listening to a book on tape today and the author was talking about how each day is made up of single moments. These moments are opportunities for all of us. Single moments that make up our days. Moments that we have control over and some we do not. The one thing we can always control is our attitude in those moments. I can decide how I will react in the moments that make up my day. It's a simple thought, but one that has incredible potential.

Think about all the moments that make up your day. In line at the grocery store, getting coffee, talking to a co-worker or being with your friends and family are all moments that make up a day, week, month, year and a lifetime. They are all opportunities.

I want to remember that each day is made up of moments and that I can be aware of these moments to make sure that I am being the best sister, daughter, aunt, co-worker, friend and Christian I can be.

This is a timely message as I'm trying to get my son to stop crawling on me while I type on the computer...maybe he needs some attention! :)

These are truly words of wisdom. A co-worker of mine reminded me of this not too long ago and it really helped me during a rough time at work. We had a situation where alot of people were upset, with good reason. She said that she can't control who comes in and how they feel, but she can control how she reacts and how she feels. It was kind of weird because this is a coworker who I don't necessarily look up to but had really good advice. An eye opener in more than one way. God is good!

I've been thinking similar thoughts these past couple of weeks dealing with my (our) working environment. At times I may not be able to control what happens, but I can control my attitude - and I think that's half the battle. My mantra lately has been "just take it a day at a time." Maybe it should be "just take one moment at a time."

About Me

I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.
