The Simplicity of Now



One of the best things about being Henry's mom is discovering how to live in the NOW.

When he's awake, we DO. We go on walks, we rock and sing, we play on the play mat, we go to the store. We visit friends, we go to playgroup, I give him a bath, we sing & read outside. Things like my novel addiction, facebook, email, and even this silly blog fall way down the priority list and making sure Henry's needs are met, making sure that we're enjoying this day is what matters.

Which is perfect because you know what? I don't want to miss out on today.

I'm not entitled to be Henry's mom. It's not a "right" of mine. The Lord didn't promise me a tomorrow with him. Thus, the gift of the now.

And now is precious.

So well put. You are so right. And you are an incredible mother - beautiful, smart, and selfless.

Very true. I'm usually afraid to miss one second with Anniston, but there are also times when I get caught up with silly things trying to get my attention. Thanks for the reminder :).

Aww..now I'm crying. Not that that's unusual...it happens all the time these days. Having a kid is emotional, no? All you said is so very true...and so very sweet. :)
