Precious Moments

Ren with Abby a few days after Abby was born.
In their new wagon! Abby is 1, Ren is almost 3.

Scott and I on our wedding day...
Spending the night in my Maasai Village

Graduating from Nursing School, 2009. BSN Baby! 

Snuggle time with Grandpa...I miss him everyday...

Co-founding a non-profit and following my dreams. 

"It's not the years in your life that count, its the life in your years!" At least that is what the stamp told me that I found last night when I (finally!) organized my crafting supplies...and tonight after a wonderful day spent celebrating my baby turning one. (I can't believe it!)  I sit reading (I should say re-reading) The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts. The first book in the series emphasizes moments. Moments in life to be captured, to be remembered, to learn from, and to grow is full of moments..

Too much lately I've let moments escape me, too hurried with tasks to enjoy the smiles and laughter of my children, to stressed to embrace my husband, to overwhelmed to remember that those around me may be overwhelmed to and maybe we all just need a hug...(Hugs make the world go round in my opinion...) 

Maybe I'm just emotional today (or maybe that's every day, but who is keeping track...) but I'm thankful for the moments in my life...the good, the bad, and the ugly. To grow and learn, I'm traveling through life and I hope to Heaven when I'm laying in my death bed I can look back at my life, at my string of moments, and smile...
