A teacher is explaining biology to her 3rd grade students.  She says, “Human beings are the only animals that stutter.” A little girl raises her hand saying, “I had a kitty-cat who stuttered.”

The teacher, knowing how precious some of these stories could become.  So, she asked the girl to describe the incident. “Well,” she began, “I was in the back yard with my kitty and the Rottweiler that lives next door got a running start and before we knew it, he jumped over the fence into our yard!”

The teacher exclaimed, “That must’ve been scary!”  The little girl said, “It sure was. My kitty raised her back, went ‘Sssss!, Sssss!, Sssss!’ and before she could say ‘S#!t,’  the Rottweiler ate her!”

The teacher had to leave the room.

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.  –Henry David Thoreau

This week, challenge yourself to be completely present in every moment.  Put away your phones, be more attentive to your surroundings, your lover, husband, children, wife and immerse yourself into you to be better for them and yourself.
