I absolutely love this quote as it is such a great reminder to be present and not be restless for what is next. So much of the time I hear people say “I can’t wait until……” But we also can’t get that time back.
Our children are in a precious and all too fleeting time of life. We can take a lesson from them and their ability to be present.
Take the pressure off. Let them be. Enjoy them. Soak it up.
“Because children grow up, we think a child’s purpose is to grow up. But a child’s purpose is to be a child. Nature doesn’t disdain what lives only for a day. It pours the whole of itself into the each moment.” ~ Tom Stoppard
