enjoying the view
Anna Quindlen that reminded me to fully enjoy life. She says that enjoying the view is living your life to its fullest. That is exactly what I have been trying to do the past few days. Instead of running for my camera to "capture" life I am standing just taking it all in. "Enjoying the views".
* watching Harkin dump all of his toys out and move them from place to place
* enjoying one of our last warm days outside- splashing in puddles, picking up leaves and seeing the excitement in my child's eyes at experiencing nature
* listening to the big boys mine rocks by the river, dig holes and smash sticks- things boys do
*crafting with all of them, Harkin just enjoying the process while the big boys really concentrate and create wonderful pieces of art
*still being asked to tuck my 11 year old in
*loving holding such tiny hands in mine
*still in awe that we live in the woods where it is peaceful and full of adventure each day
*watching Harkin imitate his big brothers in all that they do- the good, the bad and the funny
*smiling as Harkin anticipates Daddy's entrance each morning into his room for kisses and hugs as he leaves for work
*laughing as the boys rock out to Dad's music during the late afternoon hours
Hoping to remember to always enjoy the view and wishing you all the same.
