A Nice Day
« on: March 23, 2014, 10:09:55 AM »
It's Sunday. Go to Mass, take the grandsprogs to their activities, cook dinner. Usual stuff.

Not today.

Two of our grand daughters do ballet. It's fun, they enjoy it, it's good exercise, and flexes them up for the martial arts class they do on Monday. Today was different. Their teacher went nuts. In a good way.

One of the class is one hell of a pianist, even though she has to sit on a phone book to play the piano (she's 9 but a bit small). Lovely kid, too. Right mix of polite and sarcasm. She started playing the piano there. The dance teacher went and did something amazing. She danced. Totally freeformed it, no practice, no rehearsal. Just followed the music.

It was amazing.

Sometimes God smacks you upside the head and tells you "Pay attention. This is what life is."

Sometimes we get so caught up in preparing for the future that we forget to live in the present.
