Little Things

The older I get the more I realize, it's the little things in life, that make me the happiest...

In this CRAZY hussle and bussle of life, it seems we never have time, to "just stop and smell the roses" so to speak. There is always a ball game to be at, or a practice to get to, school programs, classes to teach, meetings to attend, and the list goes on and on and on.......  Why is it so easy to get caught up in this crazy thing we call life ?

LOVE to cuddle up on the couch and watch movies or read stories, with my hubby and kids. We used to do this all the time, now it doesn't happen as often, so it makes me even happier when it does.

LOVE the fact that my kids still want to talk to me about their day, and whats going on in their life.

LOVE the late night talks Mark and I have coming home from "wherever", when the car is quiet and the kids are asleep.

LOVE that ALL my kids still get excited everynight when Mark gets home from work, and bombard him with the days events in 30 seconds time ;-)

LOVE that even though Paden is 14, he still tells me He loves me, even when his friends are around.

LOVE the fact that my kids still want me to tuck them in at night, and spend that few minutes of alone time with them before they fall asleep.

LOVE the fact that I get random texts throughout the day from Mark, just telling me he loves me.

I LOVE that even though they fight like cats and dogs, my kids still want to make blanket forts with every blanket in the house and get in and giggle like crazy at themselves.

I could go on and on and on,.....

I realize someday some of these things will stop, and I know that they will be replaced with other things that I LOVE. But for now, this is what my life is about, and it's these little things that make my life complete, and get me through the craziness of everyday.
