This HAD to be shared.

Pin It I had a post written for today but after reading one on another blog yesterday, had to postpone mine so I could share this one. 

Y'all know I how I love me some Ann Voskamp.  I just love her perspective on life and am constantly challenged when reading her blog to look for the beauty in the ordinary. 

This post from yesterday really spoke to me.  Screamed at me, really.

I just can't even put into words.  Looking at my own 12 year old who is just so grown up ...

The days are numbered. 

I don't want to miss a one.

Now go read Ann's post if you haven't already.  Then realize that the days are indeed numbered, and go enjoy every single one of them.

Speechless. Teary-eyed. Thanks for the reminder to PAY ATTENTION to those fleeting moments rather than to the minor - and all too temporary - aggravations of a growing kiddo. Hugs.

I am reminded of this every day right now as I watch a friend's son dying of cancer. I'm trying to make the most of every moment and not be annoyed with my children's craziness or loudness or bickering. . . and just be so grateful to have happy, healthy children.

Thanks for sharing the link and your thoughts. I know I often can't believe L is 13 and he is turning into a man before my eyes! YIKES! I really appreciate you sharing and making me think today.
