Tonight I spent time with my 5 children just laughing at their silliness and fun! Enjoying them--enjoy each other. It was just a few moments, but ones I will treasure away to pull out again when I am lonely.
I am trying to live for today, to take each moment and enjoy it because I will never get this moment back again. It is a hard attitude to have, but well worth the effort.
I was in Subway the other day.. Behind me was a dad with his 2 little girls. He was very impatient with them and harsh. I wanted to turn around and tell him to enjoy them now, cuz all too soon, he won't be in Subway with them. He will be older, they will be with their friends, then on their own and this moment, which could have been a special memory, will just be gone..... Don't wish these days away because one day you will want them back!
My 23 year old daughter shared this song with me today.
Of course, it made me cry!
My 5 who grew up :(
