How often do we take time to think about what we accomplish with our own resources? How often do we appreciate all we are capable of? How often do we take the time to extend ourselves to others and share our words of love, encouragement or just a pat on the shoulder or a hug. Hugs, I have always found to be welcome by others and it seems to become contagious and makes a person feel so good. This week working with my little ones, helping them straighten their shirt collars, button a few undone buttons, slick a few hairs down with a comb they could keep and tie a few hair ribbons sure brought back memories of helping my own three sons prepare for picture day. Seems like only yesterday when they were in school.
I recall my Mom, saying “In a blink of an eye, your children have all grown up” and it is so true. Raising them, praying they will be safe from harm’s way, teaching, loving them and also reprimanding them when they didn’t follow the rules all seemed like it would never get easier and then all of a sudden, here came that” blink of an eye.” I definitely learned this first hand with my three sons and look at them with pride today as they are outstanding, loving and super adults , in every sense of the word. I wish they were here with me right now to give each a big hug and feel their loving arms in return. I am feeling nostalgic on this Sunday afternoon and thinking “Ms Millie, I am loving my life and all the wonderful people in it.”
