Time Standing Still

It is so easy for me to rush through each day moving from task to task, and miss out on the little moments because I am just so busy. It becomes so easy to let Stella play at my feet while I work, instead of getting down on the floor with her. To do lists pile high (as does the laundry pile), and I catch myself getting distracted from what really matters. I rush to fold the laundry, instead of enjoying Stella’s “help” with the task. I want to get things done, but I want to be present more. I don’t want to look back in 20 years and wish that I had taken more time to play games on the floor, help her feed her baby dolls and run through the backyard.

Our amazing photographer Deidre captured this image of Stella and I, and I will cherish it forever. It is a reminder to me of why it is worth it to enjoy life and love our children. I want a little less busyness and a lot more moments like this one.

How beautiful. You are so fortunate that someone captured that precious moment on film.
Children are such a blessing. Mine are down (20) or near so (17- twins!). But I am happy to report that each stage is wonderful. Enjoy.
