Yesterday was "C"'s 11th birthday. We're pictured here together when he was still months old. Man, does time fly but it seems like yesterday that I was pregnant with him preparing to give birth. I clearly remember planning my own shower because I'm a control freak like that sometimes....yes, I admit it! As I think about how much life has changed for us and how much is happening in this adoption journey, there's so much that I want to rush but wait...I want to slow it down all at the same time. If I rush the adoption process, I'm also rushing the days that these little ones grow. God, please help me to remember that as fast as I want things to go, help me to slow down enough to truly relish every single day with this amazing little boy....because I do believe that one day, I'm going to look back and miss these days together.
"C", Mommy truly learns more from you each day than I've ever been able to teach you. Thank you for helping me to learn to love in a way that I never knew existed. I'm so proud of you.
What about you my blog buddies? I want to hear from you? How do you take time to really enjoy your little ones in spite of this hurried society that we live in?
