Dustyn’s favorite cookies right now are Oreos. I mean who doesn’t like oreos? I have really been trying to capture these cherished memories because I know they will not last forever.
Soon my five year old will be 15, then 25 and next thing you know he will be married and have some kids of his own. Dustyn, just wait till your kids make a mess.
I found out recently a little boy who was five years old that I had been praying for passed away. It broke my heart in two. That could have been Dustyn or Carsyn. What would I regret? What would I have wished I would have done with them? It is hard to even think about that. But realizing that it could happen really makes me not take anything for granted.
The bombings at the Boston Marathon are so sad and scary. I start to go into anxiety mode when something like that happens. I want to just shelter my kids and never let them out of my sight, but I know I can not live in fear. I can not control what happens to them. I pray to God every day to keep them safe.
All I can do is enjoy this time and capture cherished memories. That way I will always be able to look back at pictures and remember our life together. Photos are so amazing to have, so pick up that camera. Tell your story.
One day he will be grown up and it won’t be cool to make a mess all over his face. I sometimes get mad because he makes SUCH a mess while eating but I know these days are passing too quickly.
Hug your kids tight today and every day. Enjoy the time you have with them. Make sure they know you love them.
What will you do today to create memories with your kids?
