When you hug your kiddos are you usually the first to let go?

That used to be me.

Now, I remind myself to hug as long as they need.

Especially at my kid's current ages (11 & 13), it makes for a special moment and connection.

I often get the sweetest smiles after.

It's easy in this rushed world to hurry things up...

sometimes even affection.

Don't forget to hug someone you love today :)

for sweet Jennifer

Do you know Jennifer from the blue sparrow?

She the loving mother of a baby in heaven.

His name is Bryston.

I've been following her journey of sorrow, heartache, remembering for the past year.

She has touched my heart.

She is a firewife and has a deep desire to become a nurse.

Jennifer...this is for you.
