Fun Monday, the Blessings version

Southern Doll is our host this week, and she has a very nice task in mind for us:

What have you done in your life that was worth doing? I want to know the moments in your life that you hope will be the ones to pass through your mind when your time comes. I hope that doesn't sound too morbid. This doesn't necessarily have to be items you have checked off your Bucket List, it can be those small moments that made you smile, or the time you got that huge promotion you deserved, or the first time your baby smiled at you out of pure joy. I want to know all the moments, big and small, that make life sweet! If you don't already have a running list of these in your mind, you should! These moments help you remember how much your life is worth living, and we all deserve to enjoy it.

My moments are those that I've spent with my family. I love to hear my kids laughing, screeching, acting like children. My proudest accomplishment is providing a good childhood for my kids. I am proud that I can show them how to be a strong person that still shows their feelings. I hope that I am showing them how to live life to the fullest, laughing as much as possible and crying when necessary. I am proud that I was there to support my MIL during her fight against breast cancer. I'm proud that I went to college and graduated. And I'm proud that I can support my husband in his desire to serve our country. The things I'll remember on my death bed won't be big, life changing events, but those small, precious day to day moments that truly take my breath away regularly. I live a blessed life, and I'm thankful for that every day.

But aren't all these little everyday things so important~ the childhood we provide for our children is what they will remember and what we cherish :)
