happiness is a voyage...

My mother-in-law shared the slide share in the post below with me today. Something I really needed to think about on a day when Miles barged into the bathroom as I was taking a shower screaming and crying - when I asked him what was wrong he said "I skweeming" and when I asked why he said "because I is skweeming." Then he covered his arms and new shoes in hand sanitizer while I finished my very unrelaxing and not so private shower. And I think to myself...when he's older it will get better. It will be easier. I need to enjoy Miles (and Elijah and Ella) now, and not wait for when they are older or easier or whatever. Easier said than done at times, I know. But one day they will be grown and gone. What will I be waiting for to bring happiness then? I need to learn this now...so that then I won't have so many regrets. Now, go on down to the post under this one to see what I'm talking about.

I love that slide show. This is something that I've been thinking about a lot lately too. I added part of the slide show as a quote on my Facebook change. It's a great reminder...thank you!
