make each day count

5.19.2011

That phrase has been floating around in my head lately. Each and every moment I'm given is truly a gift. Sometimes I catch myself taking those precious moments for granted.

I do admit that time by myself is enjoyable. Secluded, cozy on my bed, reading a good book is something I'm usually up for. But I've realized that I need to spend more time with my family. Even if it means not doing something big - just simply being there with them.

Making each day count isn't as easy as it sounds. Digging a little deeper beneath the surface of everyday life can be difficult. But once you find the beauty that's underneath, you know its worth it. Going beyond the usual effort you give is hard. But the good it brings makes you know its the right thing to do.

I don't want to look back on my life and see a bunch of what if's. I want to look back and see that I did live each day to the fullest.

  4. loved your GORGEOUS photos...and I enjoyed your sweet words :)

    You have your priorities straight m'dear :) Have you ever heard that quality time is more important that the quantity of time spent with loved ones? Well, my husband and I agree that it is more about the quantity. While we want to make sure our family time is wonderful and beneficial to our relationships, we also know the more the better :) And from your lovely photos I can tell you soak up each and every moment, large and small :)

    PS - I still have your sweet Mom in my prayers...
