Every now and then there are moments in my life when I feel compelled to step back and see my life from the outside- the way I will view it years from now when it replays in my memory. These are the moments that I never want to take for granted, that I never want to forget, the moments I want my mind’s eye to savor for the rest of my life. Only since my dear Matthew has come into my life has this happened for me, and now I feel it happening more and more as I soak up these precious days in my young children’s lives. I have never felt such elation as I do when I rock my precious baby boy and listen to my sweet girl cooing over him. There is nothing sweeter than this time of life, but I must allow myself to step back enough from the chaos of cleaning, cooking, discipline, and foiled plans to see just how fleeting it all is and how much I have to cherish.
