There are moments. A few moments here and there. Lovely moments that make me remember what life is all about.

They don’t happen often. A life with five children gets a little crazy. But they do happen.

Little moments when all the children are getting along, hubby is humming a song and I am not "PMSed". Those are wonderful moments.
Small snippets of eternity when I watch a child giggle with glee while being tickled by an older sibling. Frozen breaths of time when I hear whispers between brothers about creating a secret language. Glimpses of Heaven as my sweet family reads the sacred Word of God or kneels in prayer.

There are those times when I try to inhale the sweetness of the moment.

Because, for just a short time, I remember that I am deeply in love with my husband. I remember that my children are really the coolest children around. And I remember why I wanted to be a mom in the first place.

Those are the moments I live for. The moments I love.

Those small moments really are what it's all about aren't they.
