Looking to the Future

Over afterschool snacks with Sarah:

"Sarah, you know I love being your mom. I get so excited thinking about all your talents and interests and what the future may have in store for you. Do you ever think about the future?

Sarah: "No."

Mommy: "You know what, that's pretty impressive, too. Some people get so wrapped up in whatever they think might happen or whatever they plan to do next, that they don't enjoy what is happening right now. Right now, I'm enjoying sitting here talking watching you eat that messy ice cream sandwich."

Sarah: "Me, too. And right after snack, I want to use that Sculpey you've got on top of the refrigerator and make a horse. [pause of epiphany] But I am enjoying right now!"
