So often we take life for granted! So often we go along our daily activities, blind to what God has blessed us with. So often we are in search of what we already have in our life that we forget to stop and really see what is important!
I was able to pull up this old video that our friend put up on YouTube for us years ago (Thank you Samm!) Seeing this old video of our daughter Kailee when she was only 4 years old makes me realize just how quickly life goes by. The only thing that truly should give us joy, peace and happiness is God, family and friends in that order.
I am remembering even now as I write just how many wonderful memories my family have put in our lives together. My mental book is being written everyday I get to spend on earth with my family, learning about God, and all of the crazy things I did when I was a child all the way up until I became a responsible father and husband.
Although I don't think we should ever forget to be childlike!
I sat down just about an hour ago watching our daughter Kailee who is in the video now taking roller skating lessons. Watching the smile on her face while she skates around the rink trying to dance as best she can to music playing on the speakers. I realize just how lucky I am to have such a wonderful daughter, step daughter, wife and family.
There are so many pages that have been written and so many more that are blank just waiting to be filled with new and exciting memories. I can't wait to turn the page and see what is next! Remember to see what is around you before you miss it! Before I know it my kids will be grown and out of the house, I dread those days are soon coming faster than I care to admit!
So hold on, shut up, sit down, and have the time of your life with God as the driver and your family in the back seat of this great thing we call......Life!
God Bless and Have Faith!
