“Mommy, you love dis song?”
Yes baby girl, I do love this song!
“Jam it Mama!!”
I look up at his request.
I look up and find the twinkle in his eye.
I look up and see his out stretched hand imploring me to dance.
You see, this was not a rock song or a pop song, not even a catchy country tune. Today, in the background of life sang a ballad of a song that told a story. A story that I have forever connected to. A story that my children live, yet may not understand. But they can read me like nobody else. When this song comes on, my shoulders soften and my smile widens. Gracie notices my face and Noah steps in to maximize on the moment.
So dinner prep was paused, and we danced. A sway here – a twirl there. Me and my 2 youngest danced. It was lovely. And then, for a moment the attention fell away from Mama and my babies were lost in their own little damcing world. I sat on the sideline and beamed with pride as Noah twirled his little sister and she trusted his every move.
These raw, unplugged, real life magical moments…. well they remind me how precious Moments really are.
