I am probably just as guilty as the next person about not being present. I play on my iphone, check my e-mail and get distracted just like everyone else. Every once in a while I do remind myself to to enjoy the gift of the ''present.'. I stop what I'm doing and enjoy the moment. Often it's when I'm with one of my daughters or my wife. But just that little tid bit of a 'present' to myself reminds me of all that I have and helps to keep me focused. It is so important to remember that the past is gone and the future has not arrived. There is nothing we can do about anything but the here and now, the present.
