AXSpend time with Mom


1. Being in the moment

Categories: None -- Permalink
There are so many things that my mom and I should do before school starts, before she leaves, before everything else happens all at once. But all I want to do is rest my head against her shoulder and hug her, to breathe in and out with her, to drink in her presence and savor just being there.

Only those who have the luxury of time can waste it in silence. To be in the moment, not thinking about where to go next or what to do. To simply be _there._

2. Developing a system
