Words to live by

Do not dwell in the past,
Do not dream of the future,
Concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Buddha

I'm working on just being present.

I actually found the sicker my mom got the more present I became. It was not something I was trying to do or was really even necessarily conscience of. It seemed more like I simply didn't have a choice.
When I walked into her house each day - there I was. I had to deal with the moment. What med was due, was she aggitated, was the aid handling things, was she fed...
And oddly there was a peace in that presence. If that makes any sense at all.
