They say it goes by fast and to enjoy it while you can. “They” would be right. Each stage of their lives has it’s own set of challenges, but it’s more rewarding than you can ever imagine. Sometimes I have to force myself to say yes to them. To sit and play a board game while putting to rest all the to do lists swirling around my mind. To jump in the cold water and go for a swim even though I would rather sit in the warm sun. To put on all my snow gear and go for a sled ride, catch snowflakes on my tongue and explore the woods. I love seeing the world through their eyes.
Sometimes more “no” to all the busy things that can wait and more “yes” to all the sacred moments that won’t wait can be a really, really good thing.
