There are times in our lives we do not feel real appreciated. We all have those times. Part of life.
Tonight my daughter wanted to take not only myself out, but her brothers to dinner. She took us out to the fanciest place in town. She smiled so big. There were tears of joy, laughter and all around love. As I looked around the table it was hard to describe the joy we all still shared in one anothers company. My heart truly warmed up watching my kids enjoy one anothers company. No cell phones allowed until after we ate. Then the snapchat (an app that destorts faces) and the laughter was all around.
It was great to see and feel. I know there dad would be smiling if he was or is able to see them and I. We needed this time together.
I am thankful for these moments. Sometimes we need to let what is going on in our lives not stop us from living. Its okay to laugh during those moments.
I am grateful that God let me have these moments, these wonderful kids.
We miss Brian more than anything. We also know that no matter how much we miss him it will never bring him back. Doesnt mean we stop missing him, it just means until we see him again than we have to live until our time is here to meet him.
I do pray that you look around and see your kids and husband and say thank you. One never knows their time. We assume we will continue to live until we are 100, let me tell you, one never knows. So appreciate what you do have. I know there are times its hard to love when times are unlovable. Make the choice to love every day.
Thank you for taking the time to read my babbling.
