Savor the moments

There used to be hugs that left marks on my clothes or evidence that someone had a runny nose on my shoulders. I thought that I would never get a full night’s sleep or that I would never be free from diapers. I used to worry about keeping the laundry done or cookies made for them to snack on. I thought that time would last forever - all my babies under my feet – all my babies running through the house or playing in our backyard. But, time moves forward.

She doesn’t move slowly but marches quickly by often leaving you wondering where all the years have flown. Now, the laundry is easy to keep up with. My house is quiet. I don’t receive hugs that leave marks on my clothes. Now, I close my eyes and pray that somewhere in their minds, Bobby and Christi remember the truth of their lives with us. Now, I call Michael at college, just to say hello. Now, I try to catch Paul as he runs from the house to go hang with his friends.

Savor the moments and keep in step with the march of time because she will move quickly out in front of you and you will miss the beauties of life.

I love reading your thoughts on life. I too will pray that Bobby and Christi's hearts are softened.
