Special treat

Annabelle is fresh from a sleep over at grandma and grandpa's house last night. Because it was daylight savings today and they had to get up early for church, Annabelle and Grandpa took a nap this afternoon.   Guess who's now not the least bit tired.

Often times as mothers we feel less than.  We don't make the right choices.  We don't do enough.  We aren't enough.  As for me I am not here enough, when I am here I am not present enough.  I am often preoccupied (with making breakfast/lunch/dinner, doing laundry, paying bills, planning errands, etc).  It sounds silly to say it outloud.  I know my family loves me and thinks I am plenty.  
I treasure nights like tonight when we get to steal a few moments to just BE TOGETHER.

I need to remember these times when I get down on myself about all the other times.  I am here. I am present.  She will remeber these times as well as the others.  
This is life and all we can do is to live it to the fullest each day!  
(while still maintaining a household).
