Life is Precious!

I find it so easy to take my life for granted. I get caught up in everything going on in life that I rarely slow down and enjoy the moment. Since we have had two snow days last week, I have had some time to just sit down, reflect, and cherish the gifts I have been given. I have two wonderful, rambunctious, energetic, loving boys and a wonderful, supportive husband who loves me. Time passes by and I didn't even see it zoom by....I have a 4 and 5 year old? I swear they were 1 and 2 last week..weren't they? I want to savor every bit of life and enjoy it before it is gone. Ryan's 98 year old grandma is getting ready to meet her husband at the gates of, what a full life she has lived! I can't imagine what it feels like to know that I have come full circle....I sure hope I do the things that God wants me to do before I reach that time. I'll leave you all with one of my favorite songs:


  1. I appreciate you sharing that, I know that I can get caught up in a list of "things to do" and forget that life is just going to run right through my fingers. I remember when we got snowed in and Andy was at home and baby was just a few weeks old! It was...delightful... no power so no distractions except us being able to enjoy each others company and play some board games. I loved it. I think we need to just spend more time together and cherish people instead of just getting taken away with "stuff". Thank you for stopping by my site! I love this song too!

  2. What a great post! Now I need to go fix my stinkin' makeup! Girl! That song was so beautiful and just what I needed to hear today! You rock!
