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

First Day of School, Day 3
Well it's day three of the school year and Sarah was so ecstatically happy this morning -- finally she gets to begin her 3rd grade year today!! She was bouncing out of bed an hour early today with a grin a mile wide! So glad she is finally fever free, and thankful her 'sickness' never amounted to more than that!

And as much as I was ready for school to begin, I did enjoy my couple of days with just her. She made me 'mail' and put in our mailbox while she was home (see picture) to surprise me! We read two entire Junie B. Jones book - and I loved snuggling with her and listening to her giggle out loud at the funny parts. (And I wondered, did I ever laugh out loud when I read books like that?!) We also picnicked outside, played perfection, finished her summer scrapbook, and worked on a sewing project she had started six months ago.
This girl is sweetness itself and it just oozes out through her smile and laughter. She's gonna have a 'grate' year, I'm sure!
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.
