I realized while rinsing the plates off after dinner that I have a random glass plate that I usually use to serve meals on for our ordinary dinners. I wonder if someday the girls will have some sentimental value on this glass plate. Then I realized, every day is a possible memory that will stick in the girls minds and hearts for many many years.
What will they remember? What will stick? I want them to remember the good times. I am going to vow to take more time making good memories and be proactive about my motherhood.
Sometimes, I go through the days looking for every opportunity for convenience. I am going to try to relish the moments that make my life rich instead of rushing through and looking for easy ways out.
