One of them eats any & all plants I attempt to have — even mizuna left on the counter for mere minutes.
One of them has a tendency to attack my face with “kisses” way too E.A.R.L.Y. on certain mornings…& step on my face.
One of them does not always rinse or soak recently used dishes.
I am not quite sure why my mind has been so focused on those I love most & share my life with — perhaps it is the awful, large-scale tragedies abroad [both natural & human-inflicted], perhaps it is the thoughtful blog posts I have come across as well as the touching & heart-wrenching ones — but I cannot get enough of my family.
While the above behaviors have a tendency to bug me in the moment, I have decided to change this reaction.
If I suddenly were without those I love most, I know I would give anything to see those teeth marks in my leaves, to have my face drenched in slobber & to scrub that last dish. Maybe this is a depressing mindset, but I have realized to cherish what I have — everything I have & every aspect of it.
I wanted to share this, because we only have this moment to cherish…neglect…smile…scoff…dramatize…laugh…hate…embrace…worry…love.
What will you do in this moment?
