Now (while it is still called today)

"Life is only all our moments slipped on in a row, one after the otherand if you turn slow in the light, the moments might shine translucent.
And the surprise of it catches you and releases you and it is what you always hoped and always knew.
There is glory in every now.
Strange —-
how you can turn, turn direction a bit like the wind —
and all this grit becomes such startling grace…"

This is taken from Ann Voscamp:

This made me think of knitting row after row of yarn and ending up with a beautiful tapestry of colors.  Life is to be lived in the "now."  I try every day to be "present" everywhere I am.  It's a work.  Like a work of art.  It's the art of living.  That's what I want to remember and be remembered for.  That I took the time to make those around me feel special.  Everyone wants to be noticed and heard.  Breathe.  That's how we need to live.  Just breathe.  There's glory in every NOW.
