Last week we went to a wedding. I love weddings and started crying when the first note was played. I couldn’t stop thinking of my Lydia and Asa getting married themselves one day. When we finally got home, I was getting Lydia ready for bed and she gave me a big hug and said, “I’m going to keep you EVERY day!”
I have no idea why she said that , but it was the sweetest thing I’d ever heard! I got tears in my eyes and thought, “I’m remembering this forever!”
When I was pregnant with Lydia, I was VERY pregnant around Christmas. It was special because I felt like I understood how Mary must have felt carrying her firstborn, Jesus. Sometimes there are times when I identify with her again—when my children do something I want to remember forever, I think of the scripture that says Mary “treasured all these things in her heart.” I finally know what that means. My heart is full of treasures from my children.
