While taking a study break from my finals a friend shared this video clip with me.
A short while into it I was crying quite a bit. The hardest part of school for me is being away from my children, especially while studying for finals but I have to remember that I’m sacrificing right now for them so that our future may be a bit brighter.
I was touched to be able to remember all the moments that matter most to me with my family. We tend to treasure many moments more dearly because of adversity. Autism, epilepsy and mommy having cardiomyopathy have all taught us to cling to those memories. To laugh together and treasure the moments that sparkle. To unplug and just be.
Be with each other, be attentive, be responsive, be loving. I know we share these moments that matter the most, and because of that my heart is full of joy as I approach this hellish week of finals.
Next week it will just be us. Our family, sharing even more moments that matter thanks to a help from our Fairy Godmother. Even if it weren’t a trip to Disneyland I’d be so excited to be able to spend the entire week with Jeremy and the kids with no homework, or work hanging over our heads.
Here are a few pics from April that I haven’t had time to put on here from some of our moments that matter the most.
