Wisdom From My 15-Month Old Daughter

Tonight as I was putting my daughter to bed, I was worn.

Tired.

Exhausted.

Life has been busy.

But here she was.

Wearing her bonnet, all curled up in her fleece pajamas, snug in her crib...and giggling up a storm.

Seriously.

This girl had a case of the giggles!

Then it hit me.

It's so easy to get caught up in work, meetings, voicemails, laundry piles, dirty dishes, unpaid bills, emails...that we sometimes miss these moments.

These are moments we'll never get back.

Take some time to slow down.

Right now.

Look around you.

Breathe in.

Smile.

Appreciate your surroundings.

And remember, sometimes it's okay to stay up an extra five minutes to just giggle.
