Living in the moment...

So this post was suppose to be all about our Thanksgiving weekend, but my brain is taking it elsewhere. Still about our weekend, but also about really living in the moment.

Do you find this as hard as I do? Being a woman and a mom I feel it makes it that much harder. We have to wear so many faces from wife, mother, cook, calendar planner and everything between . If something needs to be done we handle it, and the control freak in me is perfectly okay with that. But I struggle so much with letting it go and just living in the moment. I want to be better at this. I need this, my kids need this, my husband needs this. Todd tells me all the time, "Can you not cut your brain off for a second and just relax and enjoy what is happening right now in this moment". Well, a few times this weekend I did this. Okay maybe only once, but it felt so good.  I want to do it more, I would love to turn my crazy spinning brain off at least once a day. So tell me, am I alone in this? Got any tips on how to be better at enjoying the moment, instead of being a million different places in your head?

Here was my moment................

My babies faces when Todd put the lights on our Christmas tree. They were so happy and Taylor was in such awe when Todd plugged it in. It was so sweet and so magical. It brought back the child in me, and memories of how special and fun Christmas really is. I love my little family so much, and want to make sure that I have a whole bunch of memories just like this.
