"Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory."
 Dr. Seuss
Today's gift came as I looked down at my wrist, having instinctively slipped rubber bands on my wrist in order to have them handy when I needed them.

So many moments turn into great memories.
Even unplanned, most unexpected moments.
My gift is remembering the moments while still wanting to make more memories.  
Greater things are yet to come.
God has just begun.

  2. I love this! Remembering to be flexible is hard for me to do sometimes.

They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
