To what end

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

This time of year, I find myself a bit nostalgic about summer activities. I remember my parents and all the things and time they sacrificed for us without appearing too disturbed by our lacking grasp of the fleeting behavior of time. With both parents gone it seems I can see the truest of meanings when I look at my children. The summers were always full special moments yet, our all-too-busy world today seems relentlessly forcing more and more, newer and newer, better and faster, without so much as a thank you or a stop and sit a spell.

I guess this year is worse than last year as I was unemployed and could while away the summer time with activities, projects and my time as I saw fit. This summer seems short already; but, special times are not in a place, nor are they in an event. They lay before us when we talk with our kids while enjoying a walk in the 100F (37C) weather. Just a stroll at a leisurely pace enjoying the shade more each time we encountered it.

So to what end does this prose come to bear? Living in the moment is finding the moment to live for in the here and now. Seek to lose yourself in the activities of life. There you shall enhance your true nature without forgetting their importance.

Be blest by being a blessing to others.

Think it, know it, do it!

Be at Peace

    It is the small, seemingly inconsequential things that we are blessed with some of our fondest memories. It's not the newest things that make us truly content, but special moments with family and friends. Thanks for the reminder.

    I agree, it is in the everyday we live, all else is memories or dreams. Enjoy this summer and remember the summer when you built the most amazing tree house for your kids.
