thankful thursday

sometimes when i'm home everyday with the kids doing school and trying to keep the house clean, it can feel like i never get to do anything fun.  

no coffee dates with girlfriends, no crafting weekends, matinee movies, or anytime to just get out by myself.  occasionally i have the urge to start to complain.  but, then i think about how lucky i am.  

i've said this before, but i am thankful i have the opportunity to stay home with my children, everyday.

{summer, 2007}

and no matter how much "free" time i could have, nothing could be better than what i've got.  time has already flown by and my kids are 11, 9, and 8.  before i even know what happened, they all just grew up.  i suppose that's whats also happening right now.  time is speeding by and in a few years i'll be writing a post about how they aren't home anymore.  that they're hanging out with their friends, going to practice or think that i'm just not "cool" anymore.  

{christmas, 2011}

so, i've got to keep the right perspective.  the time we are together is important.

i won't get it back.
i won't get a do over.
and most importantly,

i won't regret a single day we get to spend together!

and, i'm thankful for that.

thanks for linking up! i love this post. it's easy to get caught up in the time we don't have- time to do what we want, when we want. but thanks for the reminder that it is so important to treasure these fleeting, precious moments with our little ones.
