Last night, J had been wanting to go to "The Field" to pick wildflowers for me. So, I put V in the stroller and we walked over. It was a beautiful night. The wind was blowing softly, the sky was overcast, and it was beautiful. As I watched J run amongst the flowers and V have the bluest eyes ever, I was wishing I had my camera. I didn't. I did not even have my phone to take some pictures. As I pondered and regretted not having anything to take pictures with, I recognized this truth: With the camera, I would have captured the pictures, but I would have missed the moments. I thought of my Heavenly Father and His beautiful creations, I thought of how I loved my kids, I enjoyed the beautiful flowers that J brought me, and I relished the love J has for these flowers that he treasures. I would have missed it if I checked my email, texts, or Facebook. I am grateful for Device-Free.
Aren't they gorgeous still today?
And, finally, V is moving is moving so much. She rolls anywhere and everywhere and she loves to do this "push-up" thing now. Just today, she started figuring out to put her knees down. I am guessing the crawling will come soon. I am okay to wait, the rolling slows her down a little and she cannot roll up the stairs. :)
I am just so blessed. So very blessed. My life is amazing. I love it. It is not perfect, but I love it. :)
