A Happy Heart: Precious Moments

There are moments I have as a mom that many would consider insignificant, yet somehow they feel like the most important moments in the world. 

That happened to me yesterday.

My sweet Hannah is home, and I can't even begin to say how much I love that one simple fact.

Anyone who knows us, knows how much I love her. She really is one of my best friends and it's been so fun to have her walk down the stairs every morning and be able to spend the day with her. I love that we are transitioning our relationship to an adult one. It's very strange how that happens when they become adults. But, it's SO MUCH FUN!! I love our conversations and literally could talk to her for hours. Well.....actually.....we DO! I am loving this little creature who has become this amazing young adult. I'm so proud of her. It's fun beyond words to see her figure out life and who she is. 

Right now, those moments seem so precious to me. 

Maybe it's because I know these moments are very temporary.
Maybe it's because I've been without her while she's been at school, and I know I'll be without her again.

Whatever the reason, they are priceless.

We sat yesterday and we talked.


We laughed. She made me cry. We enjoyed every moment.

As a mom, I know these moments are so precious.

And I'm very thankful for them. 

Today, these 'moments' make my heart very happy.

Oh, how I wish I was there to play, to listen, to hug and just bask in the love that surrounds you. Give our Hannah a big hug for me. She is such a special young woman.
