It’s the little things that make me the happiest <3

A couple of weeks ago I came across a blog  by 4 little Fergusons and I read these two articles .

Dear Mom On The IPhone 

Dear Dad in the Recliner

This was a real eye opener for me. With today’s technology it’s so easy to get on your phone and spend half an hour (if not more) on Facebook, Instagram, and other apps/games that smart phones have.

One week ago I decided to deactivate my Facebook. Reading these articles helped me realize that I was spending WAY too much time on there (more than  I care to admit!)   In a weeks time I was able to capture all of  these  moments with my husband and children. These moments may not seem like a big deal but to our family of {4}  they mean everything. It’s the small innocent moments that make us the happiest. One day our children will be grown and they will  not want us to be  involved in every little thing that they do.  I want to have as many  memories of my children that I can  but  I also want them to have memories of me being there. When they are older I want them to be able to remember me watching them play,  listening  to them read, or watching them practice at a sport they enjoy. I don’t want them to remember me always putting my finger up saying “Just one minute,  I will look in a second.” ..and by the time you look up their done.

We get so wrapped up in what others are doing with their lives that we tend to ignore what’s going on in ours. We  need to spend more time with our spouses and children. God has given us a beautiful life with amazing people who love us-ENJOY THEM and be HAPPY ❤

  1. So true Heather. I try to be more conscious of when I do that with my kids. Really good idea to take a break from FB and all online interactions every once in a while!
