The moment....

"Don't miss the moment"...I heard this little phrase the other day and it hit me like a ton of bricks. Our babies are little for such a short time and we are so busy taking care of them. But ooohhhhhh........DON'T MISS THE MOMENT!!!!!!! Everytime I feel the pull to do this or that and my little one's are hanging on my legs for attention, I now hear these precious, powerful words DON'T MISS THE MOMENT screaming in my head. Thank you, Lord, for showing me that I was missing too many moments!!

That's something that I have always tried to do with my nieces when we were together. Too often we miss the best stuff because we're too busy.
It's much harder now with my own daughter but I do try to always be there for her.
Thanks for the reminder.

Delighted to meet you. Just found your site and am splashin' around a bit. Your header picture grabbed my heart, as we've just begun our journey to adoption through Ethiopia. I will be back, looking forward to getting to know you a bit more.

Hugs from this missionary mommy,
