Missing Moments....

Last Sunday was just one of those days. One of those days where you miss what you had. But it was also one of those days where I was reminded of how blessed we truly are.

Chaz was walking around in his legs and then walked up to give me a hug. I couldn't help myself, I cried. I miss standing hugs. I miss just being to have my hubby standing at any time and me snuggle into him. I miss him sneaking up on me to scare me. I miss walking and holding hands. I think you have to take time to acknowledge you miss those things. I think speaking those things helps you take ownership of them and helps you deal with them.

But at this same moment, our sweet oldest child said, "Mom, why are you crying?!" I told her that sometimes things make you so happy that cry sometimes. Then I told her that I miss things and told her standing up and holding Daddy was one of them. So then Deryn and Ryann both began listing what they missed. We had to take a minute and we talked about both the good and the bad. The verdict is still out on if we really miss Chaz scaring us all the time. ;)

But then once again our wise 9 year old said, but I do like that Daddy gives us rides everywhere now. Then she made me laugh so hard when she said, "We get some really great parking spots now." Ryann really misses piggy back rides. But we had to remind her that even if Daddy still had his legs, piggy back rides would more than likely not be happening because she has grown so much.

I guess we're doing something right because our cuties led me back to my happy bubble. Chaz and I even told them how proud we are that they led the happy way home. I guess it's just further proof that maybe we are doing something right around here.


  1. My husband just scared me recently so can understand why the verdict's out on that one. So glad you were able to get a standing hug!
    Always turn to the true source of help! Praying!
    Psalms 121:1-4 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

  2. Always here praying!
    Psalms 121:5-8 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

  3. Continuing to lift up prayers!
    Isaiah 40:28-31 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
