This Week's Mommy Moments

This week there are just so many 'moments' I want to remember. I'm afraid I'm already forgetting some of them. So before any more slip from my mind, I'm writing these down.
  • As I am waiting in the pick up line at school, I get tears in my eyes. I don't want these years to end. I could wait in a school pick up line forever, if it means I get to enjoy these years with my girls forever.
  • Sarah and I volunteered at Convoy of Hope. We packaged powered milk to send to the earthquake victims in Haiti. I want to remember her giggles, her powdered milk handprints on the boxes we packed, 'cuz she was 'sending her handprint to Haiti!'. I want the words she spoke at the end of the night "it was awesome!" to always be audible in my brain.
  • I want to remember the sparkle in Morgan's eyes as she shows Sarah and me the packages she wrapped so beautifully for our upcoming birthdays. And I want to remember the fun she is having keeping the secret of her presents from us.
  • I want to remember the warmth of their bodies next to mine as we snuggle on the couch to read books. I don't want to forget being impressed with how well they are reading. Sarah is reading these words that I don't even think she should be able to yet and I'm noticing that Morgan is reading now with more fluency, her reading is 'smoothing out' and sounding more grown-up.
Yes, these are the moments I'll remember all my life. These are the moments I thank God that I'm alive. These are the moments that I'm glad I am a mom.
