My Oldest And My Youngest
So this happened. The other night, Steve, Peyton, Rhett, and I went to see the movie Mockingjay Part 2. And yes, it was amazing. But that is not what this is about. This is about what happened while we were gone. My oldest and my youngest had a special night together. Just the two of them. Madison got a gingerbread house kit for the two of them to do together. And when we arrived home, I walked in and saw two of my children...my firstborn and my baby standing proudly side by side with their sweet gingerbread houses. I can't really explain the feeling I had in my heart at that moment. It was as if I saw a piece of my life before my eyes. The baby I had so many years ago teaching and helping and loving the one I had just a few years ago. Maybe it is the season, or just that I am getting older, but that moment touched my heart in a very special way. Oh, and did I mention Madison also helped Flynn make Christmas tree ornaments out of popsicle sticks and buttons too? It was a good night. And once again, I realized how quickly life passes. And to savor every moment. : ) Madison snapped a few pictures on her phone, so I would be able to keep some memories of their special night together.
