Cherish The Moment

Cherish the Moment

Read my book, rub my back; Daddy listen to my prayer
Let me sit in your lap, Daddy fly me through the air.
Throw a ball, make a snack; Can we go to the park?
Tuck me in, hold me close; I don’t like the dark

Cherish the Moment; Soon you’ll be apart. Cling to the memory; Clasp it to your heart. Soon comes the day when you’ll have no child to hold, So cherish, cherish the moment.

Sing a song, play a game; Swing me high in the air
Ride a bike, fly a kite; How I love the times we share
Hold my hand, hug my neck; Daddy bounce me on your knee.
Come and sit by my bed; Daddy rock me to sleep.

Think ahead to a time, When your little ones are grown;
Hold them tight, don’t lose sight of the blessings you have known.
Think ahead to a time when your little boy’s a man
And you’d give anything just to hold him again.

I cam across this on a blog earlier today and it hit me hard. My situation with Eli may be less than desirable and nearly unbearable at times, but it's part of the journey. It's part of my story and my time with him. And I will Cherish the Moment.


  1. Praying for you and for your precious blessing, Eli!!

  2. Lindsey, thank you so much for your prayers. Things are starting to look up around here. We will be in prayer for you, Daniel, Audrey Ann and her birth mother. You are going to be an amazing momma!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
