Quickie Quotes: Living in the Here & Now

“Life is a gift to be grateful for & not a property to cling to.” Henri Nouwen

“The real enemies of our lives are the ‘oughts’ and the ‘ifs.’ They pull us backward into the unalterable past and forward into the unpredictable future. But real life takes place in the here and now.” Henri Nouwen

    V! Interesting comment right above mine. Not sure where the ‘ought’ or ‘if’ fits in, but…
    Now…as for living in the here and now, I’m not Swedish, but I’m a firm believer in the here and now of ‘National Cinnamon Bun Day’–Oct. 4.

      Ohhhh Tim, I adore sticky cinnamon buns. When I worked in DC a local place made sticky rum cinnamon buns that were absolutely divine! Now I can’t handle the sugar overload (had to give up Red-Light hot Krispy Kreme donuts, too.) But cinnamon buns are certainly something to celebrate!!!🤪 🥮🍩🍯🍩🥮😋

        Virginia! Thanks for checking in! I love how food transports us to good memories. Sorry about the need to reduce sugar decadence in your diet. N
