making time...

Before I was a mommy I thought I would never let anyone else hold my baby. Then once the baby came, I craved a break and would gladly give him up to loving, capable arms. The busyness of life creeps in and there always seems to be some place to be. So this is a friendly reminder to myself to take time to listen better, cuddle a little longer, build one more puzzle, give a few more kisses and laugh off little accidents. The time goes quickly, I don't want to rush it.

So true. As you know my kids have been sick. We've had to stay home the last several days and though I hate that they are sick, I actually thanked God for forcing us to slow down and just enjoy being lazy together. Today is day five and we all went on a well needed outing:)

Wow, well spoken!

My mom would tell me when my boys were little, "these are the happiest days of your life" I wondered at the time but now I know for sure. Little boys little problems, big boys, bigger problems.

Isn't it amazing how we crave time with our loved ones, but once we are in the moment, there are a million distractions. Even as an auntie I find myself thinking, maybe I can wash the dishes really fast or make a snack or clean up the bedroom. Some things have to be done now, but most things can wait. Treasure the here and now!

What a great reminder. We do get caught up in the less important sometimes and forget what matters most.
