Cherishing

So it has been quite a while since I have written last. It just goes to show that life can spin around and become quite the circus act sometimes. I love being involved, active and a part of things, so I would never say that I don't like being busy. But one thing that I am beginning to learn more and more is how much when you get into the swing of life you forget to cherish the moments and seemingly unordinary daily wonders.
I am now 34 weeks pregnant. Around 6 more to go. I can't believe where the time has gone. My oldest Leanna has just lost her first tooth. Cadence continues to amaze me with her dramatic creativity in all aspects of life. Rayne.. wow.. sparkles with innocence and is going into JK this year... can you believe it. And Kassia... who is the baby of the family for the time being is showing signs of heading toward being three... potty trained (almost) and full of fun and fantastic stories to tell the whole family, expression, voices and all.
Now taking into consideration that my veins are pumping hormones through my body at the speed of light it feels like. I am finding myself overwhelmed in needing to slow down and take each moment for the treasure that it is. Every smile from the girls, every giggle and every call of their little voices for mom, should trigger a instinctive reaction from the depths of my heart to connect with them, when the opportunity arises. That is my desire. I want to be there, present and available to cherish my girls and show them how to cherish each other. Where does the patience and calm come from to literally slow down my body and MIND, and trigger the connection with my girls and to stop and take time to enjoy the last portion of this pregnancy?
Peace! Even just the word calms my spirit and feeds my soul and seems to put me in the proper mind space. God wants to lavish his over flowing peace on all of us, so that no matter what is on our schedule or circumstances that we are going through, we are able to be thankful and enjoy those things that matter most to us.
My prayer now is for a peace. A peace of mind, spirit and body in order to enjoy every moment being a mom.
