Lessons from a Babe
He asked me when it was that I knew my life was changed in regard to the baby being born. My answer was...instantaneously.
I pondered where my daughter would be in 20 years, what would the world be like. There are so many concerns and worries, the economy, politics, the war all sorts of things that take up our time and in some ways force us to look into the future.
But what I've learned from the little being that now shares my life and my house is that she's simply focused on today. My buddy said, "That's because she doesn't know that there's a tomorrow" and I said..."Excatly!"
She lives her life moment to moment, second by second. And even though there is a tomorrow she's not focused on it. It's a true lesson isn't it? I mean obviously we, as adults, have responsibilities and there certainly indeed is a tomorrow, a future.
But so often we forget to live for today and cherish the wonders of life moment by moment, second by second.
So for me each day is a lesson and I'll be reminded of this one every time I look into the eyes of my daughter.
