Moments

There are moments in life that metaphorically smack you in the face.  A wake up call, if you will, to get outside your own head, look around, and rejoice.


As the rain falls quietly outside, I'm tucked comfortably into bed with my little family.  My husband is snoring softly next to me and the pups are snuggled under the covers at my feet.  I'm pulled out of the moment I'm in and remember to thank God for what I've got, who I've got and where I am in this life. 



Life is good.

I LOVE moments like this. I had many of them last week while Tim and I were home together with our growing family. I have NEVER felt so blessed in my life. Kudos to you for giving a shout out to those moments.

Yay for acknowledging the moment. Sometimes we get so caught up and moving so fast that we don't get a chance to recognize it!

What a nice thought, in the moments of stillness is gratitude. xoxo

Such a nice reminder. Love the way you worded it, I went "awe" out loud. ;)

I think of those moments as awakenings. And I love them.

You summed it up perfectly.

Life is good, indeed!!

I can't wait for you to metaphorically smack me in the face with some 1-on-1 time! (thats what she said).

CANNOT WAIT to see you.

Some of my favorite moments are at home with my boys...all snuggled up on the couch! It's the small things that matter!
