I did it!

So I finished Nablopomo.  Yay for me!  I’m glad I did it – but it was a lot of pressure to think of something to post EVERY DAY.  Now with Christmas approaching, I don’t think I’ll be able to post every day – but I will post if I have something I really WANT to share – and not just because I feel like I HAVE to.  So. 

Here is a quote from an author I really like and admire.  It’s a quote I think I need to print out and hang somewhere I’ll see it every day…

“The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. … I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less.”
– Anna Quindlen

these days go by so quickly.
