Sweet Savoring Moments

After coming home from their house, the kids and I took a family walk, barefoot. The two older boys rode their bikes far ahead of me and Dash. Dash rode his scooter, while I walked, snapping pictures.

The sleep overs in the living room, and the Lego creations, and little Lego’s I step on, ALL of it will linger in my mind and on my heart. Because I’ve been blessed to raise these boys, I continue to purpose living more in each moment, with each son, and live up, soak it up, all of it.
