January 25, 2019
How has it been over a year since I’ve made a blog entry? Amazing that the last was December 2017 and here we have now arrived at January 2019. Time flies. I’ve heard that phrase for years but now, more than ever, fully understand how true it is. Time does not stand still. It races and flies by. Whole segments of my life and role as mom now stand behind me. It’s crazy because I long for so much of the way it used to be, but these treasures are now out of reach:
-sitting snuggled up on the couch, reading from beautifully illustrated picture books
I used to sit with stacks of books. Stacks upon stacks. The kids would sit there with me wanting me to read book after book. It was such a gloriously delightful love for this mama’s heart. We borrowed hundreds, if not thousands, of picture books from the library. At one point I remember pondering what if I had started a spreadsheet and typed in all the titles we had ever read together….how many books would be on that list? It would have been soooooooooooooooo many. I would walk out of the library with multiple bags, bulging, filled to the brim with books.
