Be happy for this moment.
This moment is your life.
How often do I find myself wrapped up in the silly little things?
The laundry that needs to be done, the beds not made, the toys that have overtaken the family room.
I can feel the stress rise.
My blood pressure goes up, as the words spew from my mouth.
"Clean up the mess!"
"Put those toys away!"
"Let's go! Let's go! C'mon let's go!"
I'm in a hurry. A hurried and harried state, where I lose who am I. I don't like this person. I realize it and I need to change.
Who am I kidding?
Does any of this little stuff matter?
Will they notice if their clothes lie an extra day in their laundry basket?
Will they remember if their beds were neatly made every day?
Will they remember the organizational bins mommy put in the living room to try and keep things in order?
The answer is simple.
and neither will I.
I will remember those silly faces,
running through the waves,
those quiet moments of reflection,
the disappearance of the baby as the little girl emerges,
the cuddles, smiles, and joy in the moment.
Be happy for this moment
because this moment,
