Cherished Moments

"Cherish the moments for they too, become memories."
L. Kaliski

I was looking at some photo albums and began wondering how the time has passed so quickly. When we get older our appearance can stay the same for periods of time, however, watching our children grow makes us realize how fast time goes by. Little Chick was just a baby not too long ago. It astounds me how much children grow and learn in just their first few years of life. It is a gift and a miracle all in one.

I need to keep reminding myself to "stay in the moment" so I can fully enjoy my time with my daughter. Somehow life and all the "stuff" we need to do each day gets in the way of truly being able to "stay in the moments" that I so wish to cherish at all times. I want to stamp the impression of these wonderful memories in my mind as they come and go. It is something we all have to diligently focus on each day so that we don't turn around in ten or twenty years and say, where did the time go?

Some of my favorite "moments" are when Little Chick and I are at the beach. It has always been such a huge part of who I am and now I pass this love on to my beautiful daughter. Time does not stop for us, so we need to stop ourselves and look at all that should be cherished each and every moment.

  8. I love the quote. I bought a necklace for my mom for mother's day that was inscribed: Cherish the little moments in life, because one day you will realize that the little moments were the big moments.

  10. Agreed. Trying to stay in the moment and remember it too as it happens. I can't believe it's already been eight months for me - and know that the years will go fast. I'm a planner and sometimes I have to force myself to stop planning and just enjoy now.

    So today. I'll do just that!
