I Hope I Will Remember

I hope as I look back on my mothering days, 
 I will remember the vivid details of my home at Christmastime.
I hope to remember the warm meals I planned and prepared on those 
cold winter evenings.
I hope I remember the candles I lit at the dinner table, 
and the Christmas plates we ate off day after day.
I hope I will remember the music I played loudly in the kitchen,
and the little messes in certain corners of my house. 
I hope I will remember the smells and sounds...all of them.
Last night, the whole family supported Jane in her violin Christmas concert
in the school auditorium.
I hope I will remember watching each child praise her
after the concert, along with a hug.

I hope I remember every single second;
the good, the bad, the ugly, the messy, the busy,...all of it.


Join me tomorrow afternoon to chat.
