Treasured Moments (14)

Do you find yourself falling into a pattern of daily grind, skipping the ‘fun’ activities because you don’t have time or lack energy?

Do creative arts, nature walks, drama, read alouds or spontaneous acts seem only a distant dream in your life?

Yet these Treasured Moments shared with loved ones uplift us, nurture our soul, remind us of the beauty and joy in our lives.

We want Treasured Moments for ourselves, for our children, for our families but how can we make it happen?

… Commitment … Encouragement … Support … Ideas … Plans.

I invite you to join us every Saturday and share your plans and ideas, your targets and goals and your stories … your ‘Treasured Moments’. In this way we may inspire one another, encourage ourselves and start achieving our dreams.

I’m aware I continue to be patchy in posting, mostly extensions continue to consume our lives. Making an effort to record these treasured moments is important though as the daily, small details are often the most precious.

1
Snuggling on the lounge reading to my 5 and 3 yr old.
I really, really long to be in a better pattern of reading, this time nurtures not only the children but me.

2
Spending time in the park playing with my four youngest, treating them to a ‘special time with mummy’ ice-cream.

3
Pushing little ones on the swings.

4
Sharing the joy of numbers with my 3 year old.

5
Chatting with my teenagers.

6
Reading Grammar Land to my middles and sharing in my 10year old’s enthusiasm.

To join in you are welcome to add your post here using the Mr. Linky form (please link to the individual post) and include a link back here. If you haven’t a blog we would still love to hear your voice, just leave your stories in the comments.

    Oh what a nice surprise to see that you were able to post today Erin! I really relate to your saying that YOU are as nurtured by your read-aloud times as the children are…I feel much the same. Such a lovely image to picture you sharing ice-cream and pushing your Littles on the swings:) Thanks for being here to host for us!

    Erin, this is such a great idea. I really struggle with taking the time to educate my children in the most important ways, because I get so caught up in the "basics" of school. Thanks for reminding me of what's important. I'll try to remember to add my own post to this on Saturday. Have a great weekend, we are expecting around 20 inches of snow. UGH!
