adding up

If I could relive one day in my life, it might be the day I had my first baby.  I looked at his little body and thought I was the luckiest woman in the world.

Or it might be the day I met my future husband. I had been so sad after a recently botched engagement, and he made me happy within the first hour of spending time together.

It could even be the first time our family stepped off the train in London after flying all night and landing at Heathrow.  The boys were all so good on the plane, and we were giving them a real adventure.  We were so proud of ourselves.

I did have a really good day in Knoxville, Tennessee once too. 

A life is a lot of little days that add up to something meaningful.  Not always happy.  Not always sad.  But meaningful.

Remembering to do the math is important.

It really is all those small things that add up! Over all it has been a wonderful life.

I'll be thinking all day now of what day I would like to relive :)
This was a great reminder.

A really good life is the sum of remembering all those sweet moments.

Too true.

I say that a lot when I come here, huh? ;)

Miss Robn is still first. Go figure.

Love these small glittering days that stand out amid all the others.

That's a good way to put it, not good and not bad but always meaningful. I would like to think that my life has been a step by step lesson with some huge joy thrown in here and there.

I've never thought about this before. I think I'm going to spend tomorrow thinking about days I'd like to relive.

Like you, I would have a hard time narrowing it down to one day.
