Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful for today. Often times, it's dreadfully difficult to be in the moment, isn't it?

Carpe diem? Nice in theory, but it's nearly impossible, almost inhuman. We're so caught in what happens next, what isn't done, what's going on over there that we lose right now. The very trendy phrase "live in the moment" doesn't tell you how to live in the moment. And that's what we need to know, right?

So for right now, it's right now. Threats loom on the horizon, doubt plagues like the plague, worry is hovering overhead, pain lingers at the legs, still, this moment, and this one and this one and this one are as real as you will ever get, even if it's at a desk, in the kitchen, on the beach, in the car or up above.

What are you thankful for today?
