Living in the Moment

We have been living in the moments (soundtrack here).  Yes, that's what we've been up to.  We've been quilting, organizing, painting with spin art, reading and writing stories, assembling puzzles, and playing for hours in the yard and garden.  It's nice to stop for a moment to breath after the endings of scheduled academic activities.  To rest in this transition time into summer, as all time is transitioning from one something into another, brings peace and grace.  The world swirls around us and we are here in the center of it as we stop to smell the flowers, to refill our bags with library books, to sit in the tiny wading pool, and to rest in our togetherness.  Sometimes we are the swirling, though we still hold this center of calm within us.  For example, today we have many activities and tasks to accomplish, yet here I am typing away in solitude while my children brush their teeth and pick wild flowers for our friend in the hospital.  There is peace within each moment, purposeful or otherwise.  What a nice moment this is.
