There are days when we I get lost in the chaos and forget to cherish the moments in between today and tomorrow.
It is hard to tell the story of a life that has been spent in a daze, remaining numb to yesterday, escaping the days and waiting in between today and tomorrow.
I sit and sip my coffee, the children are racing all around and every now and then I really join their world. Their world is so different than mine, than the one I have spent my days living. They are grasping each moment, soaking up each memory and me – I spent my life just being stuck in between now and tomorrow.
Now – it always seemed painful and tomorrow had a promise of something better.
Now, I was in the middle of something or being pulled here and there – or even left where I was. Surely, tomorrow will be better.
It was easy to begin my days as a mother that way. “Today, they are crying and needing a diaper changed. Tomorrow, they will sleep and I can find who I am again.”
But, through writing here, the in between days seem fewer and fewer. Living a life out loud, seeking to truly find out who God is and live for him; can force a person to truly grasp the day, to find beauty and joy in the moments that would have sent them into the in between not long ago.
Me, I’m tired of this in between place. This place my heart likes to hide and not grow. It’s time to share about the good and the bad. It’s time to help you, yes you, break out of the in between days. Join me on this adventure and let’s not live in between today and tomorrow.
Let’s live each day with our hearts focused on what is going on around us because it’s too easy to blink and realize we missed those moments that were truly special.
Are you living in between today and tomorrow?
