Time for a reality check


A girl that I used to work with has just found out that her son has an incurable disease. I have been sitting on this for a week, trying to decide if it was something that I should write about. I just can't stop thinking about it. My mom and I were talking about it and I said that I don't know what I would do. She said "thank god everyday that your babies are healthy". Some days I get so caught up in life and mundane tasks that I forget to look at the little things. So that is my goal, to start looking at the little things. I am going to spend more time with my kids, more time playing, more time laughing, more time loving them. Laundry will wait, dishes will wait, but them growing up isn't going to wait. They are growing so much every day and I want to savor every little moment because it happens too fast. There are so many bad things that happen to good people in this crazy world, but I have been blessed with the most beautiful little girls and the best husband that I want to not take one minute for granted. I encourage everyone to do the same. Notice the little things. Notice the new flowers blooming, notice the trees with their green leaves starting to bud, notice how lucky you are to be here and be healthy.
(I haven't had my camera out for days and a post isn't fun without a picture so here is one of my faves from Lake Powell) Aren't they sweet together?

K'Brina....I'm so glad I found your blog. Cute pictures. I can't believe how fast the girls are growing up. I miss seeing you - I't seems like 5 miles is a long ways these days.

Honey I totally know what you mean, I am a crazy lady with a plan, I need to relax and not be so CRAZY. We all need a reality check. Thanks

I've been having one of those reality checks too. My friends young husband had a heart attack this week. It's so disturbing to think how quickly your life can turn upside down.
I hope your friend is doing okay with it. I'm worried I'd become a mess.
