Beautiful piece!

I’m so so sad to see my sweet little baby boy grow up. It’s so bittersweet. “The days are long and the years are short.” I think that every time I feel impatience sneaking into our playtime. It is an honor raising and loving my little Silas.

I love everything you write. So sad we missed each other at Alt. Next year! I want you to teach me to be brave in my writing.

I am so in love with being mama to my little sixteen-month-old girl. <3 I just can't imagine the day when I won't want a baby.

Even looking back one short year (or a couple months!!) and seeing all of the changes that happen within the dynamics of our small family gives me pause and reason to dig even deeper for an abundance of gratitude for each moment with my two crazy babies.

You are so sweet, and I love being surrounded by such wonderful and intentional mothers. So happy to have met you!

Looking UP to my boys! I hadn’t even thought of that! Yikes! Thanks for sharing J. M. Barrie’s beautiful words!

I felt so drawn to it when I saw it, and I just knew I had to have it. Glad to hear you enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to reading it.

I love your perspective of appreciating the highs and making peace with the lows. Very wise.

And that I’m thankful for.

And so true. I have to look UP at my fourteen-year-old now, but there are still moments when I can see the small boy he was. Knowing how quickly the time flies by helps me slow down with my younger ones. Or at least try to!

There’s a quote from J. M. Barrie (Peter Pan) that helps me with those heart-achy moments: “You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by. Yes, but some of them are golden only because we let them slip.”

As a mom to 4 teens….I miss those baby days! I so enjoyed reading Katrina Kennison’s “The Gift of an Ordinary Day” – it gave me a wonderful perspective.

Such a profound and lovely post by Bethany Meyer.

Now when we see toddlers we think what a joy it would be to have one of those around again. Life is never easy, it’s just different sets of trials and blessings. Each phase has its highs and lows. One thing we have learned through trial and error is to try hard to love every minute of the highs and make peace with the temporary lows. This has really helped us to find the moments of joy in every day. Thanks for the awesome reminder that life goes by quickly and should be gobbled up and enjoyed every day.

I have four children. A senior who is graduating this year, a thirteen year old who is so focused on everything, an eight year old who just got baptized, and a three year old son who I really don’t want to grow up…but it’s inevitable.

I don’t think I ever rolled my eyes up in the air, but i do remember saying to people, “yeah, yeah, I’m sure they do!”

It wasn’t until my oldest became a teen is when I realized time flies like a leer jet! And time goes by faster with the next, and the next, and the next.

It’s so true Amy. So true.

P.s. Love your writing and your husbands talent in photography! Hope to have him shoot us someday…someday!
