Moments of My Life
Anyway, back to the purpose of this post. I knew this year was going to be challenging. And rewarding. But really challenging. So my New Year's resolution was to learn to appreciate moments that make me happy. Just to fully enjoy the brief moment when nobody is crying, or the cute quirky things my kids do. And I've been doing just that. And it's working.
And that's where Instagram comes in. I've been fighting the pressure to join. Really, I tried. I need another social media outlet about as much as I need one more load of laundry to wash. But I have to say, I love it. I love capturing and sharing the little, ordinary moments of my days that would otherwise go unappreciated. It's like a personal reminder that the hard moments are as fleeting as the good ones. And these little ordinary moments are exactly the way I want to remember my children. And when they're grown, I want them to see what I love so much about being their mom. Although I'll have plenty of horror stories to torture them with, too...I want them to be sure they know what makes it all worth it in my eyes.
