You will never have this day

with your children again.  Tomorrow, they’ll be a little

bit older than they were today.

 This day is a gift.

Breath and notice.

Smell and touch them.

Study their faces

and little feet and pay attention

Relish the charms

of the present.

Enjoy today, mama.

it will be over before you know it.
