Aloha Friday

Today is Friday and that means it is time for Aloha Friday! Answer my question here, post your own question on your blog, and hop on over to An Island Life and link up!

So my question is:

Can you name one thing your kids have taught you to appreciate that you would never have on your own?

For me, bugs. Yep, bugs. My munchkin boys are fascinated with bugs....they like to watch them move along the ground, and wonder where the bug has come from, where it might be headed, and if it has a little buggy family waiting for it somewhere. Now, I go out of my way to not step on any errant bug out for a walk, LOL. They just might be on their way home after a hard day at work!

Hi Thom,

I should ask questions that are not kid-centered next time. Have a great weekend!

Wow, that's a hard one. Personally, my kids are all grown, but I'll tell you what time has taught me. To appreciate my grandchildren now while they're still little. I miss babies even when they're standing in front of me. I can't hold the little girl that use to cling to my leg in the store or cuddle the toehead little boy we called Cuddles or rock my other little boy in my arms because he's 5'8" now or tuck my baby girl in bed, and sing her to sleep because she's in Iowa now with her husband & son. Cherish your babies mothers because they don't stay that way very long.

Now I appreciate it more because as times moves so quickly, they grow, and change and it's amazing how fast.

Then Time. Just to stop and enjoy minute life.

To see the joy in simple things . . . like playing in the rain instead of complaining about it.

Probably just to slow down and enjoy the small things - but I'm still not very good at that!

Hmm, I know there are things, but I can't think of anything specific at the moment. Good food for thought though!
