The little moments, far too often taken for granted

Its these little moments, to us as adults they are merely that little, perhaps insignificant… To our children they mean everything!

Little man asked if they could have pancakes for supper one night, he loves helping make things, both of the kids do, whether its at home or at grama and granpa’s. They loooove how grama makes pancakes lol he always reminds me not to forget the butter, I typically do πŸ˜‰ So last night he quite proudly began getting the ingredients out, remembering what they used with Daddy last weekend when Mommy wasn’t feeling well.

The kids quite happily climbed up each on a bar stool, one with the wet ingredients, the other with the dry – see this is why baking isn’t a fav of mine I dont measure lol.

Little moments in their life that will be a part of their lives for many years to come.

This week when we had an evening storm, we woke up to devastation on our front porch. The evening before I admired mama robin sitting on her nest. This morning we woke up, the kids went out on the front porch with our dog… to find the nest upside down and all the eggs/babies gone 😦

Its all so very true, in a brief moment, your life as you know it can change, some small changes, some quite significant. The kids talked about how the birds must of hatched and flew away with their mama, as I was tearing up I encouraged this thought for them, afterall they do not know any better so why burden them with hurt emotions thinking the babies died. Walking by our front entrance and looking at our window, I will be honest I miss not seeing her sitting there. We were all so looking forward to watching the babies hatch from their eggs and mama robin feeding them. Not only the miracle of life, but also the beauty of nature!

Little moments in life that we enjoy, one day will merely be a memory. Our kids thrive on family and friend relationships and those memories which come with them. Moments between themselves as siblings, moments between us as our own immediate family and our extended family. After the misses dance recital Saturday we had our family back for dinner. The next day, the kids were expecting everyone to come back again πŸ˜‰ They love having the family together and having fun!

A little moment from our family cottage, I captured this after the kids kayak’d down to the sand point, they are so sweet and little. Some very similar pictures I have of myself enjoying the beach growing up. We had a full cottage that weekend with family and friends, as Dad said the way even he remembers and enjoyed the cottage through his teen years and once he had his own family. Even these little moments I look back on and they are heart warming.

As a photographer, I have thousands of photos. Especially for every significant moment in our life or in our loved ones lives which we are included in. I take great pride in capturing these moments, the love and fun had by all. These images are especially important when one day that is all we have. Young children cannot understand significant life or relationship changes, nor would I ever be the parent to go into a great lengthy discussion which could hurt them further. Kids need to be kids, enjoy the little moments and cherish memories they have been blessed with.

10 ways to love, and enjoy those little moments even more… a good read for everyone! ❀

10 ways to love

You can never take too many photos, spend to much time or laugh too much with people you love, mutually respect, have fun with, smile, who truly make your life better when you are around them. Cheers to all those little moments with our family and friends. They are not moments to be taken for granted! ❀ And if someone does take you for granted, if they choose to not be a part of your life or involve you in theirs, if you can honestly say you did what you could and tried, its now time in life to move on. The past cannot be changed, the future is always a new start to the day!

“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life. ” – Richard Bach

Life is short, days go by fast, live, laugh and love every moment!
