You're Gonna Miss This

I was  hitting ground balls today, my sweet husband was the first baseman,  Caroline was on second, Zachary was at short stop, and Annie-Lauren was our third baseman. We were all out there together, because Zachary needed to practice fielding ground balls. 

 (Zachary's baseball commitment is a family affair ☺)

I am good at  multitasking , so as I was hitting balls, I had also started making my unending list of everything that needed to be done before the next day. Lunches to make, laundry to do, homework to check, prepare for my week at work.... the list was going on and on in my head and here I was out in the middle of a baseball field hitting baseballs. Then I thought of the lyrics from a
Trace Adkins song...

"You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this"

I know you know it.

(Unless you are like my husband and HATE country music... he had the good fortune of marrying  someone who LOVES country music☺)


As I stopped and took a "a good look around" the thought came to me... "Lisa, how many more days do you think you have left like this perfect day?"  They are growing so fast. "You're gonna miss this,You're gonna want this back"I put away my list in my mind ,  made a conscious decision to be present right now in this precious moment, and I hit another ground ball.
I am learning to~
"take a good look around... because these are some good times" Sometimes I forget that, but today I did not. ♥
