Staying in the moment

A Door County Morning

My family spent last weekend in Door County. DC is a photographers dream vacation. My family was patient with my constant clicking but I can’t help but believe that sometimes they just wish I would put my camera down and be in the moment – with them. The last morning I woke up before everyone else and went down to sit on the beach with a book. As I looked out over the water I felt peace…..calm…..What is it about water that can do that to us? I so wish that I could get to that moment of not wishing away the time – of being anxious to get to the next part of my life. It’s not because I’m not happy, because I am – Very Happy. It is more about the fact that there is so much I want to do – to accomplish.  Life is short….  I realize that  more than ever as I watched my 16 year old baby boy pull in the driveway with his very first vehicle last night….Time is rushing by ever so quickly.

So This is my prayer – to be grateful and content and yet excited with anticipation to where He will lead me next.
