Beautifully imperfect...

I wish I could get this video I saw on facebook over to my blog. But for now I'll just state that sometimes it's the little things that bring things into perspective. This short little clip was a funeral and the wife came up to talk about her husband. But she didn't want to talk about all the great things about him. She wanted to talk about how he snored at night and farted at night. And then when he became ill it was the only thing that let her know that he was still alive.

It makes you take a step back and look at life and look and the little things in life. Do you ever find yourself just going through the motions and living life and not taking a step back to realize what life is all about? It's about ALL the small things, the little things that make life worth living.

Yes the things your husband does may bug the crap out of you. But Mike often says to me, "you'll miss it once I'm gone!" And truthfully I would. If Mike were gone it would break my heart to not have him to kick at night for snoring... I would be so sad that I wouldn't laugh every time he looked up at the sun just to make himself sneeze. I would miss the smell of his yucky spit after such said sneeze. And believe me there are a ton of other things I could post about what he does! :)

Sometimes I catch myself getting to wrapped up in the day to day grind, and the day to day stresses that just consume me... that I'm not able to just take in the things that I would miss if they were gone. So today I think I'm gonna slow down a little bit and enjoy my kids and just be happy in the moment and not worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will be here soon enough!!!
