Too bad I don't have pictures...
6. Every day I try to look at my children individually and ask myself "What would I do differently if you were my ONLY child?" I know that my kids will never get what only children get... but I do try to give them a few moments a day of "only child" love.
8. I feel it. I really feel that feeling, that I'm FINISHING a long, hard journey and that I'm on the precipice of a lovely period of life. I do know that life ALWAYS has it's challenges, and I tend to be pessimistic (or realistic). But this weekend, life feels carefree and beautiful. I feel the possibilities. I feel my husband lighter and happier and HOME ON SATURDAY!! Yes, I do believe we are just about FINISHED with this stretch of our journey. And, the path ahead is looking lovely...
This sentence has echoed in my mind. I need to be more deliberate with how I spend each moment of my life. Life is short and I want to be able to say "I used my time wisely."
