Small Moments – Enjoying Life

Family Fun By July 17, 2015 Tags: , , , , 1 Comment

With the endless parade of work, school, soccer practice, meal making, cleaning, and so on, sometimes we can get so wrapped up in having a life that we forget to live. How do we step back and ensure that we are enjoying life while caring for ourselves and those around us?

The greatest task we children have every year is to come up with the perfect Mother’s Day gift. When it comes to moms, really nothing can compare to what they have given us…life. So how can we show our appreciation and love for them?
