One of those days



One of those days.
When she’s crying for my attention. When she needs some extra love. When she just wants some attention. When she wakes up just wanting Mommy to hold her.
One of those days.
When I realize that nothing on my to-do list is as important as letting her fall asleep on my chest.
One of those days.
When I realize that nothing else really matters as long as she knows that I love her.
One of those days.
That requires extra time set aside to just tickle and giggle.
One of those days.

I am so thankful for those days. Those days that remind me what life is really all about. What really is important. What really matters in the long run. What really would matter if I were not here tomorrow…

and this is Love.
He is love. We are to be love. I am to be showing that love to others as I have been shown that love myself. I want to be loving my Jesus more and more each day, and loving others more and more each day. Being that love…that Love that is only found in Christ.
I want my little girl to know that she is loved. Completely. 100%. Loved.
I want my Savior to know that He is loved. Completely. 100%. Loved.
If tomorrow never happens…if my to-do list never happens…did I love? Did I love my Savior with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength? Did I love those in my life, those closest to me here on earth?Did I love those He brought into my life as He would love them? Did I show them Jesus? Did I lead them to the cross?

I want to love.

I want to let it be one of those days.
