Children remind us that… 

Chocolate milk is a reason to celebrate!!

Lunch at the zoo is reason to shout– “this is the best day EVER!”

Life really is one party after another!

Everyday isn’t perfect.  Everyday isn’t outrageously fun. 

But everyday is filled with so many magical moments we couldn’t even count them if we tried…

Sooner of later we all discover

that the important moments

in life are not the advertised ones,

not the birthdays,

the graduations, the weddings,

not the great goals achieved.

The real milestones are less prepossessing.

They come to the door of memory unannounced

stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit,

and simply never leave.

Our lives are measure by these.

Susan B. Anthony


Thank you Heavenly Father for these precious moments with my children. I am forever in awe of the lessons you teach me through them.  Your greatest blessings often come costumed as simple moments.  Please help me never to lose sight of the love you send us all day long.
