There are moments in life in which you wish time would freeze and stand still.
Moments in which you wish you could bottle up and save for another day.
Moments in which nothing else in the entire world matters other than the very second in which you stand.
You soak them in. You burn the images into your mind. You take photographs. But the moment always passes.
I love to escape with my family.
It doesn't matter where we go as long as we go. Life at home is full of work, school, sports, church, chores, that it's hard to enjoy the precious moments because life moves too fast.
But for me, when we get away from it all, it is refreshing.
It is peaceful.
It is relaxing.
It is re-energizing.
It's just perfect.
The only thing that matters in those moments is that we are together.
When we are able to get away from it all I feel connection between us as a family.
I feel connection between My Sweetie and I.
I feel at peace and calm and in those moments I am able to hear God's voice because life, for that moment, has slowed down.
It is in these moments that I hope and pray that we are creating memories for our children.
That we are setting an example of the importance of family.
Although I wish that I could string together an entire lifetime of moments like these I know it's not possible. For "if life were full of moments, you'd never know you'd had one" (Into the Woods)
I certainly appreciated, enjoyed and cherished every single moment we had together this past week. I hope to practice the fine art of slowing down just a little at home so that I don't miss the ones that are here also.
