Being a mother is amazing for thousands of reasons. One of them is that it reminds me to stop and ENJOY the moments of life.
The other day my son spent thirty minutes playing in our curtains. The sun was streaming in, it was early in the morning, and he had the greatest time just laughing and running through the sheer curtains. He spun around, he draped them over his head and giggled as he walked forward and the curtain fell from his face. He ducked behind it and peeked out at me, laughing hysterically when I replied with surprise each time I saw his face.
There are so many lovely things to learn happening all around us all the time. It's just a matter of opening our eyes and being willing to see.
