to consecrate my minutes.


I've been feeling a reverent urgency to hold my kids.
Sometimes overwhelming; it's a hushed, insistent nudge, to sanctify my moments.
This means less projects, less chores, less blog.
More mom.
I'm grateful. I'm listening.

Thank you for sharing the sweetness of this moment. When time has passed and your little ones are gone, you will always hold these moments in your heart...always.

Of course I love to read your blog, but that's because of the type of person you are and your priorities. Such a cute picture.

this is the best picture. I try to remember to squeeze in those extra hugs and kisses. And sleeping kids are one of my favorite things.

I have been feeling that lately too! All of a sudden Brody is getting SO BIG, but more than that, I suddenly look at Taj sometimes and realize he really has, afterall, only lived on the planet for 4 years. Period. He seems so old next to Brody, but when the bigger kids come on the park I realize he still needs lots of TLC. Thanks for reinforcing my love of Snuggle Time. And I LOVE that picture. I sometimes wonder if my kids will have any memories of me when I'm gone because all the pictures take place with me BEHIND the camera...
