Lynn over at Blue Skies is having a wonderful new linky party.
The kind that makes you reflect
on a moment in your day.
I just loved this idea, the thought of keeping a moment
in a safe place, taking good care of it.
My moment happened as I was making the advent calendar with Hannah and Max.
The Christmas Carols were playing and we each had our assigned job.
As we were finishing the calendar, I stopped to look at each of them, all caught up
in the task at hand, and thanked God again for allowing me to be their mom.
I am blessed.
my family knows that they hold the key to my heart.
It is strange some days, having only the two of them home now.
If I could, I would go back in time and relive the moments
with all 5 kids home and make sure that I was taking good care of each
and every second that we were all together.
Good or bad, each moment that we have had has given us a bond
of love that I hold dear.
Sometimes as Hannah, Max and I do a project together,
I have flashbacks of doing projects with Danielle, John and Cam.
Hannah and Max weren't old enough to make cookies with us then,
or create a new Christmas ornament, so this is their time.
The circle of life so to speak... my life anyway!
Soon we will all be together for Christmas,
and we can wear our paper party hats and celebrate
our family and all that it means to us.
O.k.... truth be told getting everyone to agree to wear a paper party hat
will not happen, so I will just imagine them wearing them.
Kinda like imagining the audience in their underwear as you give a speech!
I hope you will go and visit Lynn and read her last few posts about
taking good care of this moment.
They are so inspirational.
Thanks Lynn for the party and the reminder to stop and take it all in!
