Encouraging Words


I ran across another interesting meme that I thought I’d play around with …

I definitely think we need more encouraging words, don’t you? 🙂

So first, yes, this is an actual board that I have on my fridge. But no, I didn’t write it because if I wrote it, you wouldn’t be able to read it. Seriously. My handwriting is AWFUL.

And yes. That’s a picture of Jazz when he was a baby. (He’s 16 now).

Anyway. I like this saying because it reminds me to appreciate the here and now. Since both boys are getting older (one graduated from high school this past May, and my youngest is a Junior this year), I’m so focused on their futures that I forget they are people NOW. And that I really don’t have that much time left with either of them. Even though I need to think about their future, I also need to think about who they are now, as well.

Are you appreciating the time you have with your children right now? How?
