I have to say that a sweet new friend of mine had the most precious blog that made me cry so I give her all the credit for this post. She said that she is not entitled to be a mom. It's not a "right" of hers. The Lord didn't promise her a tomorrow with her sweet baby. Thus, the gift of the now. This is so eye-opening. I am not promised tomorrow with my husband who is my world, my baby who I absolutely adore, my dogs that I love with all my heart....so I must enjoy the gift of today. All the silly things can wait. I can't get caught up in the things of the world...it's about rocking my little one to sleep, listening to Chris play the piano, throwing the frisbee with Macy and Ellie...life is in the little things and not missing out. I remember when Aiden was in the NICU and I would have given ANYTHING to have him home thinking....some moms complain that their babies wake them up at night...and I would give anything to have him home waking me up...as long as he was with me, in my arms. I hope I never forget that.
Just a thought....enjoy today, love big and never look back.
