Tonight my husband and I are at the lake. We have a houseboat and really enjoy the opportunity to get away and relax. It is just getting dark and I can hear the fish jumping in the water. The sunset in the skies showed glimmers of bright pink and orange in a greying sky. All is quiet. I listen for the sounds of nature as the quiet darkness surrounds me.
There is a sense of calm and I have the feeling that all is well. Today I enjoyed just spending time with my husband. It was an uneventful day, stopping to check on one thing or another as we made our way to the boat. I found myself experiencing the presaent moment. Being totally present and realizing that the present moment was all that I needed. So much of my time is spent regretting the past or being concerned about the future. The present is a gift and it is important for me to validate that precious time. What more do I need right now than to be with one I love and spend ordinary moments with him. I realize that things can happen and we may not always have these precious moments. That is why I value them so much. I don't want to look back and say I wish I had done this or that. Today---- tonight I am in the present and appreciating all that I have right now.
All is quiet...all is well.
