Want to Enjoy these Moments

I was just thinking the other day that I’ll never be at this same stage of life again.  What are the things I want to remember?

  • That to a 4-year old and a 2-year old, being a Ramen Noodle Gourmet Chef is Enough
  • That some of the sweetest words are “Thank You Mommy!” And “I didn’t give you a morning hug yet!”
  • That I am cool enough to spend day after day after day with
  • That a nightly tetris battle with your husband really can be a lot of fun
  • That being what the Lord NEEDS is the most important
  • That placing the needs of my children and husband first really do bring the most rewards
  • That a trip to the park or the dinosaur museum are – in a child’s mind – like that trip to Europe that I’m dreaming of.
  • That I don’t have to do large things to make a difference
  • That laughing, running, and tickling are worthwhile activities
  • That it’s really okay if my house is not spotless. My children are happy
  • That surrounding myself with good people is worth so much
  • That the Lord loves me.  He knows my name. He loves me. He gives me reminders through my husband, my children, my family, and those around me.

I tried to click the "like" button but then realized I was on your blog and not facebook. :) This post made me smile though!

That's neat that your friend mentioned a like button because while I'm reading I want to click a "Like," and "Share," button so all my friends and family can feel your gratitude for the simple and most important things in life.

I wish there were more people like you. You're a great person Janell.
