i don't have a problem admitting i'm not the biggest fan of sidewalk chalk...but we have lots of kiddos on our street and it's the "must do" for 5 year olds. i was headed out on a walk this morning...luving the sunshine & thought of spring in full effect...37 weeks pregnant and getting ready to push myelf up and down some hills in effort to put myself into labor (no pain, no gain right?!?)...when i walked down my drive-way and turned left down the sidewalk and saw little savannah's writing. you probably can't read it that well: lucy, dad, savannah, mom, jillian. i'm always grateful for little moments that remind me...despite the challenges, frustrations, aches & pains, worries...life is good & the importance of recognizing simplicity. someone once said if you love life, it will love you right back. it makes me remember why this time in my life is so important, so priceless, and so unique.
