Enjoy The Now

By: Jenifer Metzger

Some times we rush through life. We think things will ease up when our husband gets new work hours, when the baby is finally potty trained or when the teenagers are able to drive themselves. We are tired, exhausted really. We want life to settle down and things to be easier. We heavily sigh as we wish for the future to come, and be more simple.


Enjoy the now.

Today is not going to happen again. One day your children will grow up and you will miss today. I promise.

My son used to crawl up in my lap every single night. As we sat watching tv, working a puzzle or whatever our night held, he would crawl up and ask me to scratch his back. I loved it! However, there were a few times that I had had a long day and just wanted to sit alone. I never told him this. I never made him get down because I knew he needed it. Little did I know, I needed it too. Now, at 12 years old, he doesn't climb on my lap anymore. I miss it more than I can say.

My husband loves to tickle me just to see me smile. It irritates me. I hate being tickled. However, one day I know he won't be there to tickle me. My heart aches at knowing this. So, I let him tickle me.

This day will pass. Enjoy it. Enjoy the time with your family. Hold your husband's hand. Color a picture with your child. Dance in the rain with your husband. Jump through the sprinkler with your kids. Enjoy the now.
