Today is a gift.

"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is God's gift, that's why we call it the present."

Why thank you Joan Rivers. That is a useful reminder for me today. Anybody else collecting quotes in their sketchbook? I started putting them on the first page of my sketchbook along with my color pallet, my name and number and of course the date but now I am starting to put them tucked away in the pages of my sketchbook.

The current gift in my life is time. Time to pursue my art dreams. Time to spend with my eldest daughter in the morning and afterschool. Time to go running a few times a week. Time to explore. Time to spend with my husband while our kids play nicely together in the evening and on weekends. I know all these gifts could evaporate at any moment and instead of wasting time fretting about losing them I am just going to do my best to enjoy them while I have them in my life.
