the gift of time …

Abby wrote this wonderful post about spending time with her oldest boy and how much she cherishes that time …

One of the things I think about now and again is all the incredible one-on-one time I got to spend with our oldest in the first few years of her life.

We did everything together.

We went to the zoo.


We went shopping.


We went on road trips.


Nature walks.




We even did yoga together.


And I can honestly say that (next to my mom), she’s my best friend.  I know I’ll never love anyone the same way.  And I feel so blessed that we have had this time …

At the same time, I think … I don’t have the same opportunities with our little guy.

We just aren’t alone that much.

Either the sis is around.


Or the dad.


Or both.

There’s rarely a moment when it’s just me and my favorite little man.

But we’re working on it.


Because I love him like no other, too.  And I don’t want to wake up one day and realize how much we might have missed.
