Today's Challenge - Be Present

Sometimes life serves us up these awesome little reminders to BE PRESENT and ENJOY THE LITTLE MOMENTS that are really the most important. 

Today, I was reminded to stop and smell the roses. I had a million things to get done, a house that needed cleaned, and clients that needed their hair done, but my son really wanted me to come on his class's field trip. Even though I was stressing about my schedule and having to rearrange some things, I could hear in his voice how much he wanted me to go.

I AM SO GRATEFUL I took the time to slow down today - to catch a glimpse of how quickly my son is growing up. If I hadn't I would have missed out on all the amazing LITTLE MOMENTS that made for such an AWESOME DAY BEING PRESENT WITH MY SON. I would miss out on these pictures I will cherish of him having fun with his friends and classmates. 

I know someday - probably in the not so distant future - he won't be asking 'mom' to come on field trips, so I'm going to cherish these LITTLE MOMENTS while I can. 

What can you do to be more PRESENT today? How will you create some LITTLE MOMENTS that you'll look back on and remember with love and fondness?
