how can i be so happy and so sad at the same time?
my baby taught himself how to ride his bike the other day.
bittersweet, indeed.

when i was a new mom, the idea of my baby's firsts was so exciting to me.
i was so anxious for the first crawl, the first steps, the first word.
now it seems like some days i am just begging for time to slow down, stand still, even, 
and let me bask in the moment...

...for fear if i blink, they might be all gone.

"Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away."

James 4:14

Lord, help me to enjoy every day, every moment, as if it were my last.




  1. He taught himself? That's impressive!

    I'm feeling that bittersweet feeling all the time and my little guy is only 9 mos. But it seems like every month he's learning something new and huge and won't stop growing up!

  2. it's the worst isnt' it? My girls started kindergarten this year and I feel like it's a tragedy! Rather selfish I guess - I want them little, with me forever!!!


your comments always brighten my day!
