So there we were, just hanging out and gossiping and giggling, and oohing and aahing, and, naturally, taking self portraits on Samantha’s bed, when this little bee decides she needs to be part of the action too.
I love my sisters, and I love the times we share together.
Sydnee is two now, and I can see how she is certainly becoming more self aware.
She’ll pose for a photo, she’ll intentionally pull a ‘funny face’, she’ll call her big brother an ‘ass hat’. All these things make me so excited that I get to know this little person that she is becoming, but at the same time, I wish there was a giant proverbial ‘PAUSE’ button that I could press.
You see, I am excited for the future, but I am so deliciously content with my ‘right now’.
I am learning that life is not about being happy, or even seeking happiness. It’s a little more like finding joy.
I know that if I can find some joy, and hold onto it for dear life, I’ll really be onto something good.
