As a parent of 3, I find myself trying to multitask to save time or trying to move faster to beat it.

One of my children just happened to be the opposite of me, a relaxed dreamer who takes his time doing everything.  He also likes to pause and admire things.  From him, I learn and remember that time is a gift to enjoy, and live in fully.

So when I am trying to get out of the house and in the back of my head I know that I need to feed someone and take someone else to school and I have to get groceries at some point while I am on call, I shouldpause and find something to enjoy.

I remember this quote from the New York Times Bestseller: "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp.  "Time is a relentless river.  It rages on, respecter of no one. And this, this is the only way to slow time: when I fully enter time's swift current, enter into the current moment with the weight of all my attention, I slow the torrent with the weight of me all here. I can slow the torrent by being all here. I only live the full life when I live fully in the moment."

I wish everyone an enjoyable and memorable time this summer.
