what I learned today

Today I learned that I had missed my kids way more than I realized.

I cried when they walked through the door. Four months ago today they got married - SO hard to believe it has been that long!

As I write this we are all sitting in a dark living room watching something that I'm not paying attention to as I cuddle up by the fire...God has blessed me more than any woman could be blessed.

I adore the holidays - celebrating thanks this Thursday for our amazing country and our families and then our Savior's birth. I am so excited!

Due to the shortness of their stay we will be doing all of the tree decorating and traditions associated with that tomorrow. So good.

Because all of our kids will be leaving again soon - I cherish this fireside moment. Something so simple becomes extremely significant when you realize the importance of the moments WHILE you are in the middle of them! It took distance to produce that kind of attention in me.
