In The Moment

I have been practicing living in the moment by finding joy in the present and letting go of what is over.  It took some diligence at first but now I catch myself when my mind slips into thinking of yesterdays and tomorrows. 

I am reminded of this practice every morning as I remove the drooping blossoms of my daylilies.

They burst forth each morning with a glorious blossom on each stalk and when the day is complete, they let it go.

The next morning a fresh blossom is wide open taking in the day and giving off it's beauty.

They don't wonder if yesterday's blossom was good enough.

Or if today's flower will measure up.

They have "One Day At A Time" mastered.
