This was on a blog that I check in on frequently. It really stopped me in my tracks (and of course made me cry!) since with Ryan in the house, I still feel myself in "baby" mode. Yet, I look over at my 8 year old Jack and can see how the years melt away. Since mom's death almost 2 years ago now, I have tried to be more intentional about enjoying each day with the kids. No pressure for what that day should look like - if it fills the bill, then great, but if not, well I'm sure there was something special about it regardless. Anyway, this moved me and I wanted to share with you. Even if you don't have kids of your own, it still speaks to our desire to be connected with others in a deep and intangible way. Don't forget to scroll down and turn off/pause the music on my blog!
