Recently I posted about a photo challenge to all us moms out there (and dads and grandparents, too!). The challenge was to BE IN photos with your kids, not stay behind the camera (as we so often do). I'm glad to hear that several of you are taking this challenge to heart and are even passing it on to your readers. Well I have another challenge for you. Savor every moment with your children (even the bad ones) and don't take even a second of time with them for granted.
My cousin posted this video on her Facebook page and I can't stop thinking about it. Her friend, Carrie, lost her battle with Leukemia and this is a picture montage that her husband put together. I watched it the night she posted it and I bawled...and bawled...and bawled. I just kept thinking of her children and my own children and the fragility of life.
This is such a moving and powerful tribute to her life as a woman and a mother. I'll let the video speak for itself. And after you watch it, go hug your kids and tell them how much you love them. And maybe say a prayer for Carrie's children, husband and family.
