This Present Moment

Things looks so different. I know the holidays looked different. I am learning and determined however to cherish the present. It may look different, we can grieve the loss, but there is so much to be thankful right now . . . in this present moment.

I know one thing that Covid has done, is caused families to spend more time together. For some families that may not be great, others are taking advantage of it. I know we are. We play games and are in the present moment more often . . . listening and engaging with one another.

I created the following art journal pages to reflect and to remind myself to be appreciative of ‘the present moment’ and to be ‘in the present.’ These pages are a little busier than most of my pages, however I like how it turned out. PS – photo isn’t of me.

Do you feel you’re being ‘more present?’ And just a reminder . . . you have a story to share. Don’t forget to share it. More HERE.
