“Looking inward…

Published August 16, 2013 by uncommonmommy

“Looking inward, I find that when I give myself wholeheartedly, opening into the moment with curiosity and wonder, time elongates and I am surrounded by the deliciousness of Now. Those moments that I can approach with gratitude and wonder live somehow in the realm of timelessness. Perhaps gratitude is one of the doorways to Eternity. Our young children still have one foot in the Eternal, in Heaven. We can join them there, if we give ourselves enough time.”
