I L♥ve my family..and every minute spent with them!
A couple of weeks ago I recieved a call from one of my friends (Tabitha who was 8 months prego at the time) Like always we started our conversation asking what each other was doing...she asked me and I replied "oh just nursing a baby ~ What about you?" She said she was doing alittle scrapbooking. So I said "oh lucky you" then she replied, "No lucky you". It took this phone call for me to realize what blessing I have on a daily basis that I don't always see. For instance, nursing my sweet Lyla....normally I read a magazine while she nurses or watch alittle tv, or surf the net. Not anymore, now I sit and watch her. I take it all in, her little nose, her eyelashes....everything! She is just so sweet & while I always enjoyed our time alone I really didn't realize what a true blessing it is, that I have an everyday moment that some people are not able to share. Like Tabitha~ she is still in waiting for her sweet miracle, so she longs for the moment she holds her baby, when I hold Lyla everyday. Sometimes it is the things right in front of us that we don't see. I know I have went in circles here, but I just want to say one thing from this~ look around and love what you have....especially your family. In the end they are what your day will start and end with, they are the people who truly care about you. So take a few extra minutes and hug alittle longer! Soak up life, after all we only live it once!
