I'm trying to Carpe 15 minutes at a time...let alone the Diem...

Natasha shared this article with me, and I loved it... This is my favorite part:  It describes how I feel about my day, everyday.
"There are two different types of time. Chronos time is what we live in. It's regular time, it's one minute at a time, it's staring down the clock till bedtime time, it's ten excruciating minutes in the Target line time, it's four screaming minutes in time out time, it's two hours till daddy gets home time. Chronos is the hard, slow passing time we parents often live in.
Then there's Kairos time. Kairos is God's time. It's time outside of time. It's metaphysical time. It's those magical moments in which time stands still. I have a few of those moments each day. And I cherish them."  By: Glennon Melton (Don't Carpe Diem article)
