Enjoy the moment!

So, I have been thinking a lot today. Sometimes I can't believe how fast time flies. I am so grateful for the many blessings my Heavenly Father has blessed me with! I am so grateful for my family.
My sister and I were talking the other day about how we wished we could go back about 20 years (that makes me sound old) and just enjoy the moment. Life was so simple back then. It was so nice to know that all I had to worry about was what toys I wanted to play with, and my parents just took care of the rest of it. We had some good times. How I wish I could go back for just a day, and be with my parents and sisters, the way things use to be. Don't get me wrong, I love my life now, but my memories of my childhood are very sweet. It is my Dad's birthday today, and I have been thinking about what present I want to give to him. I have come to the conclusion that the gift I am going to give to him is that I am going to try to enjoy the moment that I am living, right now. Enjoy the chance that I get to snuggle with my baby, or read a book to Brooke, or listen to how Obi Wan can kick Darth Vader's butt with a light saber, or listen to Megan tell me how much she loves Dogs and what their names would be if she had one. I am going to try harder to just enjoy these little kiddos while they are young. I think that is what my dad would want me to give him. After all, they are his grand kids! I want to wish him a happy birthday so bad, but hopefully he knows.
for it will go quickly!!

Wouldn't you still be in diapers 20 years ago? :) That is great advice to enjoy the moment. It is hard to do sometimes but worth it in the end.

I know Dad does know how much we think of him and how much we miss him. He is always with us! Thank heavens for our knowledge of the plan of salvation!

You were so cute back then! It is always hard for me to remember to enjoy each moment. Life gets crazy really fast, so thank you for reminding me to stop and enjoy! Time is flying by so fast, your kids have grown so much! You have such a cute family! I also so know your Dad is so proud of who you are today!
