friday freebie: let’s just do today

I don’t think I’ve heard four more important words than these lately.

They are powerful.

They send a message.

They create empowerment.

They create attitude.

They also create a sense of living in the moment and working on the day–being submerged in everyone around you and those that you love.

It makes you want to just hug everyone close to you and savor each moment.

It’s a mantra from a dear friend of mine who’s battling cancer….again.

I can’t even imagine.

She has an amazing spirit, a positive attitude, and a generous heart. She will do anything for you and go above and beyond what is needed.

And when she shared with me her new mantra, I needed to write it up for her.

I’d had plans to do a freebie today with a Mother’s Day theme, and while this isn’t specifically about ‘mom’, I thought it tied in well. With her permission, I’m sharing it with you today.

It’s about living in the moment.

Being present.

Soaking in what each day has to offer and taking it head on–the good and the bad.

Not taking anything for granted.

It’s about taking life one day at a time.

And as a mom, I feel like that’s what us moms should be about.

I hope you all have the most wonderful of Mother’s Days, whether you’re a mom, a daughter, a grandmother, aunt or family friend.

Love everyone you are with.

Let’s just do today.

p.s. I get to Skype with my missionary daughter for Mother’s Day. I haven’t been able to see and talk to her since December 18.  What a great day Sunday will be!

    Thank you Kerri, I needed this reminder today… Things not going well at all but there is always someone out there struggling harder. So I’ll take your advice and “Just do today”! It certainly could have been worse. Thanks for the reminder and the freebie!

    Well, you’re just filling up my little brain with all sorts of ideas for wall art for my family room. You’re making my life easy! Thank you! This is such a great thought especially for moms, because sometimes life is a little overwhelming that to do just today is good. Sometimes I think it could say, “Let’s just do the next 10 minutes…or until naptime. :)” Enjoy skyping with your daughter! That will be fun! I get to facetime my sister (she’s serving in Georgia) tomorrow at my mom’s, super excited!

    Thank you, Kerri! I hope your “Skypeing” went beautifully with your daughter! That is too long to go without seeing and talking with a daughter! Thanks again… You are very special!
