This morning when I was driving Jeffrey bean to school Chloe was lamenting the fact that her birthday is 4 months away. “It’s gonna take sooooo long,” she whined, “I WISH it could already be October!” Jeffrey (age 7) looked very thoughtfully at her and said “You know, you shouldn’t wish your days away. Just be thankful. Today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” I think this tidbit of wisdom was lost on little Chloe, but it had a profound impact on me and I can’t stop thinking about it. I so needed to hear that today. Maybe some of you do too, which is why I’m sharing. Be blessed, my friends.
