Someone to Watch Over Me

Sometimes amidst the busyness of life, you will feel a little tap on the leg reminding you to slow down and savor the sweetness that is in front of you. Sometimes those moments are so sweet, that you have to write them down because you never want to forget them.

The children were happy playing today while I folded laundry in the bedroom. Pandora was playing in the background. And the moment Frank Sinatra's "Someone to watch over me" came on, I felt a tap, tap, tap on my leg. Looking down behind me was my precious little boy, with his arms up in the air, wanting me to dance.

And so we did. And the song and the dance partner could not have been more perfect. He smiled and held both my hands the entire song and swayed back and forth. And at the end, he applauded and went back to playing trains.

But me...I had to go wipe away a few happy tears.

That was definitely a moment I will never forget.

I will always "watch over you" my love. And when you get married, this is going to be our mother/son dance song. After today, it is officially our tune my sweet Jacob!

I couldn't have picked a better, I'm so glad you did!

So very precious.
Your children will remember those sweet moments too.
We are blessed to have them remind us to stop and enjoy time:)
