Cherish the moment while you can

140493231_ee7cd603cc

I usually try not to get sentimental but I look at my kids and just think how much has changed from just a year ago.  Most of the time I try to plan get together, trips, and activities just to make sure that the kids are having fun.  But then there are times that I feel like I am not a planner at all and just go along for the ride.  It seems like I contradict myself a lot, but it works for me.

Sometimes life gets in the way too much but kids somehow bring everything back into perspective when they reach out for your attention.  It is important to cherish the moment while you can.  It really does stop you right on your track and makes you think twice about what you are doing.  I had to leave dishes undone, clothes unwashed,  and rooms with messy toys.

I have to remind myself because it’s easy to get lost with stuff.  This is my letter to myself and my kids that I will cherish every little moment with my kids and make the most with them because life is too short.

Live in the moment or it will fly by and before you know it life continues on without you.  To have memories full of laughter, silliness, and just pure happiness.  That’s what I want them to remember growing up.

    Very true, it seems like every day just passes by and I can’t remember one from the next. I need to start living in the moment and cherishing all the times I have with people.

    It’s so easy to get caught up in the moment. My girls are older and our time
    Together is a little bit here and a little bit there, but one thing we do is have dinner together each Wednesday night. My girls love it and look forward to just sitting down and talking. Hopefully this summer we will have much more time to just hangout and make memories!

    Great post! I can’t believe I have a 7 year old! I don’t know where the time went! With my youngest I have learned to stop and enjoy every second because it goes to fast!
