Being Present

This past weekend we celebrated my nephew Travis' 8th Birthday. I remember the day he came into this world, it was a party then and it is a party now. Saturday night my family came together, turned up the music, and celebrated life. I needed it. I needed to think about how Travis was a baby yesterday, and today he is 8.

I needed to hug my sister and enjoy time with her.

I needed to look over in the next room and see Elias playing with his daddy and cousins.

I needed to watch other moms enjoying their children.

I needed a night of sweet moments.

The best part about today is being present, enjoying what's in front of me.
