Just What Is Blog Worthy


I was laying on my stomach on my bed, one or two of my little guys crawling over me and another one helping Daddy pack for a business trip. We all hung out in our little room, helping Daddy check things off his list to pack. Carter gets Daddy's toothbrush, Noah helps with his shoes... No one says anything super witty or funny or cute, but as I took in the moment I thought I
want to remember this.

It's not anything 'memorable' like when the kids took their first steps or the first day of school... but it's life.

I want to remember the not so special days. When we did just random stuff and said unimportant everyday things. I used to long for normal days back when we were going through some tough times with Noah and his epilepsy and special diet.

I just wanted to remember the days that you take for granted.


So, this very moment, I am really not minding the uneventful at all.

  1. Oh, can I relate to craving 'normal' when Noah was having a rough time (Xavier's NICU days of course)... I'm a sucker for the mundane, I LOVE 'not-so-special' days. Those moments ARE life...

    Sounds to me like this day was most certainly worth remembering and blogging about for sure!

  2. I agree -- these are the moments when we realize pure joy. Contentment as God intended it to be. Nothing fancy, just living in the moment and finding total happiness. What an awesome blessing to have such a wondeful, loving family!

  3. The normal days are what happen most, so why wouldn't you want to remember them? You have to document them, or they'll slip away...

  4. Thank you for posting this, I was sort of feeling the same thing the other day when our family was playing in the living room after dinner, but you put it into words better than I would have.

  6. Lovely post. I've done that before, too - think "I want to keep this moment" and then try and freeze it into my memories.

  7. It's wonderful how you notice the little things in life :)

    I have so much to catch up on since getting back from Florida!

    Have a great week!

  8. What a great post, Stephanie! I agree, our daily lives are what is significant. The small choices we make, the things we say to our loved ones, how we choose to interact and share. The big events are only "big" because they are milestones but the journey itself is what is rich and rewarding.

  9. I think we all try to remember things like that. Just the every day stuff. Like your watching your own "Party of 5" and you can hear the music playing in the background and everyone is just doing their stuff.

  12. For me, the notsospecial days are the best. When we can just all be together at home. Not doing anything extreme, just being together.

    Great post!

  13. I know JUST what you mean. There are times when I see the kids doing ordinary, daily things...but it warms my heart & I always pray to never forget those moments. Sometimes "uneventful" times can be the most memorable!!

  16. I was just thinking about how to post about just plain, uneventful contentment, and would anyone understand or care? This post proves that, "Yep, the quiet good times are really good stuff." Thanks!
