Enjoying Every Moment
Today is my younger son, Brayden’s, 9 month birthday. My older son, Zackery, is 3-1/2 years old. They love each other so much. It is awesome to see them interact, especially when Zackery makes Brayden laugh. It makes my heart all warm and tingly and I just can’t stop grinning.
Today we had a fun family day, playing outside in the mounds of snow that Mother Nature has dumped on us the last few weeks. I was able to let go of all my worries and stresses, if just for one moment of sledding with both my boys in my lap. I felt like a kid again – carefree and alive!
Today, I am reminded how wonderful it is to be present with my children. To just lay on the floor and watch Brayden play and learn. To sit on the couch and listen to Zackery sing the alphabet. To dance around the living with both of them, all of us laughing. It costs nothing to be present, but the experience is priceless.
Today was a good day.
