Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take,
but by the moments that take your breath away.

Gratitude. It's the gift I received today. I had the joy of planning the Fall Party for Sarah's class. I've done Morgan's class parties the last 4 years, so this year was definitely Sarah's turn. We played M&M fall bingo, made a fall craft, did the mummy wrap game, ate spiders for a snack, and made a giant spiderweb. Good times. The best of times, really.
Afterwards, as we are walking out to the car, Sarah says to me, "Thank you mommy for coming to have lunch with me! and thank you for the fun party!" So as fun as the party was, and planning it was, the greatest joy came in my daughter pausing to say thanks at the end!
I also got to drop in for the last half of Morgan's party. She's in 4th grade and still gives me hugs when I see her at school, oh, I'm soaking it all up! I'm not going to be 'cool' for much longer, so I love that I am still cool in her 4th grade eyes!
Both classes did the mummy wrap game. Here's a few pictures I took of the cutest mummies I ever did see!
Resting in God's grace for me. Deeply in love with my CSI guy. Live in this gap between the mom I want to be and the mom I really am. Treasure the depth & beauty my daughters add to my life. Love how nature replenishes my soul. Enjoy reading, writing, volunteering, laughing with my girls and falling into my husband's arms at the end of each day. I'm cherishing the moments of life's journey, while pursing my God-given dreams to write, share and publish my ideas. Follow me on twitter @MomentsJourney or instagram @clb214
And these are the moments, I thank God that I'm alive. And these are the moments, I'll remember all my life. And these are the moments, I know heaven must exist. I could not ask for more than this time together, I could ask for more than this time with you. Right here in this moment, Is right where that I'm meant to be.
