Day 72 of 365: WORRY

Day 72: WORRY! I don’t know about you, but I do entirely too much worrying! I keep telling myself why? Why do I worry so much and about things that I have NO control over? I read an email that was so profound that I thought I would share it. A small part of it said, why worry and why hurry? It is like an unopened gift that is just thrown away! Think about that for a while and let it sink in!!! Take the time to enjoy those things that happen in your day and forget worrying about the things you can’t control. We never know how much time we have on this earth or if today might be our last! For instance, my daughter came over to do her laundry the other day and when she came over I turned off the TV and gave her my undivided attention and proceeded to ask her how things were going with work and college. She was full of information and excitement about her new semester’s classes and what new things she was learning! I so cherish the fleeting time that I have with my kids, as they are all on their own now. I find I don’t have the time with them that I wish I had!!! I remember saying when they were all home how nice it would be to be an “empty nester.” Now I find myself saying I wish they were all still at home!!! I guess we always want what we can’t have! Take the time to enjoy your kids, pets and partners in your life for you can not get today back!!!
