Cherish the Moments with your children



Sometimes, I can get so caught up in my day or in my to-do lists that, unfortunately, I can neglect the priceless treasure that is my kid.

I remember hearing a sermon, that we should be tying heartstrings with our children.

Life can get so busy for us parents.

Some days I swear I just find myself going through the motions, moving mindlessly from one task to another until I fall exhausted into bed.

Then the next day I drag myself out of bed only to do it all again.

If this describes your mom life then I encourage you to listen to this song, read the words, soak it in and start enjoying the time you have right now with your little ones.
I pray that I will always take time to be in the moment and treasure them.

On Father’s Day at church, a group sang this song and it brought tears to my eyes. I realized how quickly childhood goes by and I just had to share this beautiful song. I still cannot listen to it with a dry eye.

May we truly cherish the moments
I pray it is a blessing to you as it has been to me.
Below the words, I have posted the video ...be sure to read them...and grab a tissue.

"Cherish the Moment"

Read my book, rub my back;
Mommy, listen to my prayer.
Let me sit, in your lap.
Daddy, fly me through the air.
Throw a ball, make a snack;
Can we go to the park?
Tuck me in, hold me close;
I'm afraid of the dark.

(Chorus)
Cherish the moment;
Soon you'll be apart.
Cling to the mem'ry;
Clasp it to your heart.
Soon comes the day when
you'll have no child to hold,
So cherish,
cherish the moment.

Sing a song, play a game;
Swing me high in the air.
Ride a bike, fly a kite;
How I love the times we share.
Hold my hand, hug my neck;
Daddy bounce me on your knee.
Come and sit by my bed;
Mommy sing me to sleep.

(Chorus)
Cherish the moment;
Soon you'll be apart.
Cling to the mem'ry;
Clasp it to your heart.
Soon comes the day when
you'll have no child to hold,
So cherish,
cherish the moment.

Think ahead to a time
When your little ones are grown;
Hold them tight, don't lose sight
Of the blessings, you have known.
Think ahead to a time
When your little boy's a man
And you'd give anything
Just to hold him again.

(Chorus)
Cherish the moment;
Soon you'll be apart.
Cling to the mem'ry;
Clasp it to your heart.
Soon comes the day when
you'll have no child to hold,
So cherish,
cherish the moment.
