Savoring This Moment | Bath Time Joy
Life is crazy busy and it's EASY to stay focused on the to-do's of it all and miss the littlest moments that mean the most. My camera is my tool to slow down, reconnect with the present moment and SAVOR who my kids are right now in their current stage of life AND what I love and brings me joy in my busy mama life. When life is busy and I happen to see something that lights me up from within with a happy smile, I stop, grab my camera (iPhone or SLR - it doesn't matter because what does matter is that I capture the moment...), click what I see and savor the FEELING of that JOY so I can keep connecting to what fills my heart up with love and SO my kids will always have a visual reminder of WHO they are and not disconnect from themselves as they grow older, like I did.
He gets SO excited when she joins him for his bath. Like screaming, hands clapping, splashing and moving his body all around while sporting the BIGGEST smile ever on his face. He laughs and does silly things and she's right there laughing with him.
As I watch them play and splash, I'm just overwhelmed with SO much joy, gratitude and happiness...I'm SO thankful they have each other...SO thankful!!
It's SO fun watching two siblings bond...something I've never known, and never will, since I'm an ONLY child. It truly brings happy tears to my eyes, especially when I think, they will have each other from this teeny-tiny age until they grow older as adults.
I pretty much think, there's nothing better than that...even with all the sibling conflict to come (a family wouldn't be a family without some conflict here and there, don'tcha think??)
It won't be too much longer until they part ways in the tub, so I'm SAVORING this joy...this moment...for as long as I can. It always...ALWAYS...melts my heart.
So tell me...
What what moments have you SAVORed today?
Until next time...
Life IS so FULL of JOY...SAVOR it up!
