Life is about living. I make an effort to do that every single day. Stop and enjoy the quiet times when I have them. Read a story to my kids with their minds so curious to what is on the next page. Simple family days to lay next to each other and just talk or have “tickle you up moments”.
I like to see the beauty in every moment. Capturing the rays of sunshine that gently brush their cheeks. Pushing them on the swings so their feet can go above their heads while they hold on tight.
Beauty in every moment. When my children want to help dust and I check in and I see my charges on my dining table full of water. Yes even those moments. I am not perfect and I do lose my patience and sometimes forget the beauty in the moments.
Life isn’t complete with out a few bumps along the road. We will encounter them daily sometimes hourly, especially in motherhood. But enjoy the ride with the ones you love and love everyone around you.
You have no idea what the bumps may be for the person or family member next you. A tragedy, a loss, loneliness, depression, addictions, hatred, anger, so much going in our lives. Why not see the beauty in life and love. Slow down a minute and just capture those rays to make you shine in someone’s life.
Be blessing. Be the beauty. Be love.
