Short and sweet this week.
Enjoy the small things!
Many of my small things recently have been little conversations with my teens. Being fully present in those conversations. Cherishing the words they share with me. This time passes so quickly.
And so I am quiet on here and quiet on Instagram.
Because I am in a season of listening.
Listening as they speak about their future. Listening as they reminisce about moments from our many journeys.
The landscape of my home will likely look very different soon. Last week, Big Mr. finished his testing and is a certified welder. He is out interviewing and he and some buddies hope to get an apartment together sometime this summer. Mr. D graduates from high school in slightly over a week. And he has plans to move south right after that.
Suddenly my nest of three will become one.
So I am listening.
I am breathing it all in.
I am enjoying the small things.
Let your light shine!
*as part of the enjoyment of the small things, I will not be sharing a Tuesday Truth next week. My parents will be up from Florida to watch Mr. D walk across the stage next Wednesday and I will be soaking up the time with everyone (plus running around like mad preparing for graduation day). *

Enjoy every moment! xx
Thank you!! I am! Tomorrow is the big day. xx
Congratulations to new Grad! I hope he and you have a lovely day. New adventures await for you all!
Sounds exactly like my life at the moment. I’ll soon only have my 10 yr old daughter at home with me. It’s getting so hard to see each one leave, but the good thing is they’re all really happy.
It is definitely hard seeing them leave. I’m glad yours are happy. Mine seems to be as well. It makes the process slightly easier. 🙂
It really does 😉
Soak up these precious moments. They will make great memories and there’s lots more ahead ❤️
Thanks, Joanne! It is a really special time. Tomorrow is the big day. <3
Enjoy this time. Soak it all in. 💕
Thank you, Rebecca! Tomorrow is the big day and it still feels like just yesterday when I was sending him off to kindergarten.
Hi Amy, You are a wise lady, recognizing the teen years as precious and fleeting. They are very fortunate to have you as their Mother❤️
Thank you, Erica! That is so kind of you to say. These years are definitely precious and fleeting. <3
It really is about the smallest of things sometimes, isn’t it.
It sure is Jonathan…it sure is! 🙂
You are so smart Amy! This is exactly the way to do it, and I am speaking from that empty nest!!
Thank you Dee Dee!! Tomorrow is the big graduation day! xx
