My daughter held a hummingbird. The girls said it was so soft ...

"I meant to frame and hang this," I say, trying to explain to my daughter. So many things I've failed to do as a mother. This and that. But when my daughter stumbles across something special and her expression brightens, I embrace that moment to my heart like a cherished friend. And I'm so thankful I didn't do what I never did. I'd never do what I never did again for another moment like that.

Happy Mother’s Day.

Alzheimer’s can take away much. But celebrating my Aunt Novie’s 80th birthday, I discovered something. My take-away … when it seems one doesn't have a lot to go on, one goes on what they've got. Because some things found in this life can never be removed without authority--love, treasure, a fighting spirit, determination, humor, Coca-Cola, chocolate, and best of all, Jesus.

What Alzheimer’s Can Never Take Away … can you add to the list?

When life is tough, and it seems I'm not coping too well, I'm comforted by my grandfather's sweet words from so long ago and by my Jesus' sweet example of handling stress in the garden. And as I sit in the midst of the flood, the guilt of how I should be handling things rolls in waves away from me, back out to the ocean. And relief, full of peace, splashes over me like new rain. Like Heaven sent. And I think ... maybe I'm not handling things so wrong afterall.

It's not easy letting go, as our kids begin to slowly leave the nest. Especially a kid who's fought cancer. But thank you, Father, for taking her hand and traveling this road with her. I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter man in her life. You’re everything I’ve ever prayed for, since the day she was born. I’m thankful she knows you.

Sometimes it takes comparing where we are now to where we were to see that we really needed change.

Love doesn’t always come in a heart-shaped box.

"Do y'all want to start reading together through the New-Testament-in-a-year?" I ask the girls. It's been weighing heavy on my heart.

Both nod so eagerly.

Whew! Because I'm going on fumes right now. And when I'm too tired, I'm reminded I'm too tired not to.

*We are enjoying the Bible Gateway Mobile App ... and taking this limited time together by the reins.

I throw on my winter gear, grab my camera because when it's all said and done, I guess I'd follow my Katelyn anywhere. And I want to love like she loves. I want to leave the kind of heart-prints my daughter has left on me. I want to throw open the door, brave the wind and cold, the unknown, and step out in love ... to love. And I know if I ever step out, I'll never be content to stay inside.
