Sunday Snapshot ~ Savoring the Moment

     A couple months ago, I came across this wonderful post by Glennon on Momastery.  If you haven't read it yet,  you should.  It's a wonderful read, and talks about the many daily challenges of motherhood.   She admits that it's not every moment of every day that we treasure, but those special moments when we can put aside all the chaos around us and truly see and appreciate our children and our lives.
      Every since I read that post, I've been more aware of those special moments in my day ~ those times when the usual noise and frustrations fall away and I have a moment where I see my kids in a special light.
     So I'd like to share some of those moments.  Maybe it'll be every Sunday, maybe it'll just be when I get the chance.  And even though I realize that these posts will be more as a way for me to capture this time in our lives,  I hope they inspire you to be aware of the special moments in your day as well.

Now, after all that, here's the first moment that I'm going to share.  We've been enjoying some unseasonably warm weather this past week, with temperatures up in the 70's some days.  On Saturday afternoon, the kids went out in the backyard to play.  They'd been out there for a little while and I hadn't heard any fighting or complaining (that, in and of itself is something to savor! ;)  )  I walked out to see all three of them working together to build a "mud mountain" in the horseshoe pit.

They were just so happy there in the mud.  Maybe it was because seeing them brought back my own happy mud memories, or because the sun was shining, or because there wasn't any fighting or bickering, but I could care less about the dirty clothes and realized that this was a moment I truly wanted to savor!

How about you?  Have you had any moments like this recently?


  1. I love this post! I too have been taking more time to stop and savour special family moments. I love to watch my boys just being kids and playing outside, getting dirty and not having a care in the world. I also savour their special times with daddy, working on cars, riding the tractor or shovelling snow together. Thanks for the good reminder.

  2. great post! we just went to the beach, snow covered and all. my little guy decided to shovel ice out of the water instead of play in the tiny amount of sand that was visible. he ended up soaking wet and had to ride home in his undies. i loved every minute of it!

  3. wonderful post, I have many of these moments with 6 kiddies and 5 of them being boys. But with my baby girl, I was deweeding my garden and she was trying to help, well she just found herself in love with the dirt, and by the time I was done she looked like a dirt bomb it was too funny, I said to myself she is just like onw of the boys :-) I really love your site and am a follower now

  4. It looks like they had a blast! My little ones love playing in the mud too (and so does mommy )
