Soaking in the Moment


I'm soaking in these moments.  

I'm ignoring the tug at my heart that says they are fleeting.

My heart is full and overflowing.

We are in the 'wonder years.'

Life is beautiful ... not perfect, but beautiful.

This is a week to unwind and put away the pressures of everyday living.

Their smiles and laughter are like dark chocolate for my soul.

This week makes all the weeks of homework, driving, working, seem distant.

I am refreshed.

I breathe in the moments.  Inhaling the sweet aroma of my children enjoying life.

I watch them jump in the waves and shriek with laughter and I am satisfied.

What a beautiful picture and everyone should have that outlook "to soak in the moment" because you never get them back you have to relish them while you have them.
