beauty in the little things

As a mom of three teenagers, I know how quickly the years pass. Where did they go? I'm also a mom of two little boys as well though and I'm constantly reminded of taking the time to cherish each sweet moment. Each sweet hug. Each sweet kiss. Each sweet little gift I receive.



I received the sweetest little bucket of dirt yesterday with the last, beat-up daisy clinging to life in my garden. It came in some loving little pudgy, dirty hands and a heart full of love. What could be more beautiful?




Some days I've been too busy to enjoy the sweet little things. I'm trying to slow down. Savor the moment. Remember what's important. Find beauty in the little things. My life is a masterpiece of them if I only stop to look.

Have a beautiful day,
Julia

  2. Beautiful thoughts, Julia...and so true! I'm the mom of three teenage girls...my oldest will be 20 in December--where does the time go? I've always tried to cherish every moment, but sometimes we do get a little busy with the things that don't really matter, don't we? Love your beautiful new blog!

  3. Oh, that is the sweetest gift! You are so right. The years go by so fast. I often wish I could just take them back and make my girls little again when they were full of giggles and sticky kisses.
