The number 10 book was “The Book of Awakening: Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have” by Mark Nepo.
Trace Adkins in this country song called “You’re Gonna Miss This” reminds us to enjoy the process. The first verse is about a teenage girl being taken to school by her dad. She is, anxious to finish high school. In the second verse the same girl, now a newly-wed, is anxious to get out of her first apartment and into a house with kids. The next verse finds her dad dropping by for a visit. The girl, now a young women has a house full of kids and a plumber working on a broken water heater.
Trace Adkins continues
“You’re gonna miss this
You’re gonna want this back
You’re gonna wish these days hadn’t gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you’re gonna miss this
You’re gonna miss this
Yeah, you’re gonna miss this”
