It is an absolutely beautiful morning here in West Texas. It was cool this morning in the 60's with bright blue skies, plentiful sunshine, and a light breeze. And, it's quiet. No TV, no radios, just the sounds of nature--birds talking, leaves being rustled by the wind; you know how it is. It's just so wonderful. It's serene.
My son is playing sweetly with his trains in his bedroom and my girl just feel asleep in my lap. As I take her to her room to lie her down in her crib the thought comes to me---these are some of the best days of your life--cherish them. It's so true, isn't it? We don't know what the rest of our lives are going to bring, so we need to remember to cherish the moment we are living in.
We get so wrapped up in the everyday chaos that when a quiet, peaceful morning comes along, we almost miss the specialness of it. It almost reminds me of being a kid and how even though life wasn't perfect all the time, it felt safe. I miss that sometimes. That total feeling of knowing that everything in life was going to be okay no matter what. I hope that's how my children feel. I want them to always know that they will have that in their hearts.
