Cherish 2014!!

Wow, I can’t believe it is already 2014! 2013 was such a busy and exciting year. It will always hold a special place in my heart as it is the year baby Lilly came into my life. But I am ready for 2014! I am confident that it will bring lots of blessings and excitement.

My word for 2014 is cherish.

With 2013 literally flying by, I want to focus on cherishing life’s little moments in the new year. There are times when life gets so busy, stressful, and chaotic. Most of the time I find myself going through the motions to get through as quickly and easily as possible. This year I want to take a step back in those moments, breathe, notice, and find the good in them. I want to remember them and hold them dear. Cherish them. Because in the blink of an eye they are gone.

“You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow they will be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift. Breathe and notice. Smell and touch them. Study their faces and little feet. Pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today, Mama. It will be over before you know it.”

    Thanks for this post, Bri! I need to remember to slow down and cherish the moments instead of rushing through to the next one. And I’m such a big fan of Jen Hatmaker. Her books –> AMAZING. Thanks again, Bri. Just the reminder I needed today.
