  1. Yes, you’re right. The present moment is the moment that counts. At the present moment, I just finished reading your devotion, and I am looking outside at the snow on the roof. It is pretty, bright, and white. It is a delight to see that. I really appreciate your rules of happiness. Thank you.

  2. Sometimes, I do fear the future. When I look back in time at my mother in law (I’ve known her for 45 years, almost half her life)”then” and “now”, I see coming attractions for me and my husband. As Bette Davis said “Old age ain’t no place for sissies.”. But it also teaches me we must live in the present and, as you point out, count our blessings. So today, I was grateful I was able to get out of work early, and was home when a phone call I did not expect came. And, I was able to see the snow from the comfort of my living room.

    I love this! Living in the now is definitely important especially when you’re too stressed about life in general. Thanks for the reminder! This one is something I tend to forget.

  4. well, my brother and I were just chatting about this very topic this afternoon. he works around some very negative people and it is starting to bring him down. We had a pep talk to not let the Debbie Downers bring him down.

  5. I don’t worry about the past. But what you do now can most certainly impact your future. If you spend all of your money doing something that makes you very happy today and leave yourself with nothing for tomorrow you are screwed so you can’t just live for today. Unless you know for a fact that you have no tomorrow.
