The babies, playing with a plastic container and making us laugh
Em and Noah playing out in the snow with Grandpa and daddy
The babies and I, playing in the patch of sun on the carpet this morning
All we have our these moments. This is what the kids are going to remember. Not what I decorated the house with, or what clothes I thought I had to buy them. I want them to remember having fun. I want to make worthwile memories with these little beings.
I have to be proud to live this life, and teach them the value of family and faith. I couldn't do that if we would have continued down that path of wastefulness. That path leads to regret. I've had enough regrets in this life.
"If you have time to chatter,
If you have time to read,
Walk into mountain, desert and ocean.
If you have time to walk,
Sing songs and dance.
If you have time to dance,
Sit quietly, you happy, lucky idiot."
