Cherish the Gift of Time

2019 Mom mug.jpg

My Mom was back to visit for a couple of days💝 We were able to sit across from one another as we had our quiet time in the morning (which wasn’t so quiet😊). We sipped our tea as we talked. And we took time to walk and talk some more.

Having a cup of tea, going for walks and having talks with my parents used to be regular part of my life. Since they’ve moved, I’ve recognized what a gift it was to have had them live so close for myself, and our family. Our time together is now infrequent and short, but we are making the most of it.

I share this with you today to remind those of you who live close to your loved ones that it may not always be that way. Yet even you do remain close by, be sure to cherish the gift it is. And for those of you who live far from your loved ones, like I do now, I invite you to join me to...

Pause. Breathe. Pray.

May we give thanks for the time we do get together. May we be present when they are with us and enjoy these fleeting moments. May we capture the memories in our hearts, and on our cameras. And may our time together be fuel in our tank that nourishes us until next time💕🙏💕

With gratitude and hope,

P.S. Kate gifted me this mug right after my parents moved. I was so touched by her thoughtfulness and I love drinking out of it, especially on the days that challenge me as a Mom🙃. I also love to share this mug with my Mom when she visits💞
