I want to share what I found

on my friend Lisa's blog..check her out here http://djandlisa.blogspot.com/

Here is something she had posted on her blog and boy oh boy did it ever make sense. As a scrapbooker, it made me realize how important it is to take notice of the everyday stuff and to document regular every day stuff....Here is the piece from her blog that i'm referring to.....

Recognize that the joy of motherhood comes in moments. There will be hard times and frustrating times. But amid the challenges, there are shining moments of joy and satisfaction.Author Anna Quindlen reminds us not to rush past the fleeting moments. She said: “The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. … I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less."

Enjoy your evening!
