Cherish the little moments

It's days like today that I love being a mom. As I was sitting out on the deck watching my two little guys play with one another. Yes, my baby boy is turning one next week and has conquered the milestone of walking over a month ago:(  I wasn't prepared for that as Toby walked after he was one.

Anyways, off the bunny trail. It truly touches a mom's heart to watch your kids play together. I'm so thankful for how far we have come in the last 3 years as a family that it puts a smile on my face seeing Toby driving around in his little power wheel jeep with a big smile on his face. Yes, he has his scars on his chest that remind me daily of what was there and how much he conquered in his early years but I thank God for him in these moments. 

So dear friend if today was rough, tomorrow is a new day. These moments are fading fast and faster then I can count which scares me as they will be grown up in the blink of an eye, so hold him closer. Cuddle him one more time. Give him kisses and chase him around the yard because before you know it, this time will pass and he won't want to do those things. 

My heart is full of joy and love at this moment and my prayer is that it extends through the words I write into your heart today. 

With love.
