Stop and pick the roses

This past week was a whirlwind. Emdee was working late every night, which mant it was just us girls for dinner, play and bedtime. The weather was wonderful, warm, sunny and full of fall color. We spent each evening playing outside and soaking up the last of the weather - having heard at each weather report that Sandy was bringing high winds, cold temps and maybe even our first snow.
This past week I was reminded again just how much the girls have taught me. To slow down, to soak in the blessings of each day...and as we headed in for baths on Thursday, the sky blazing orange and pink, Sweetpea asked me to wait a minute longer.
She headed toward the flower garden with nearly all the flowers dead and removed for the season, and came back with a bouquet. "Now we can enjoy these a little longer, mommy."
So as the rains came, and the wind and the cold, we have these sweet flowers as one lst reminder of a fabulous season. Now if someone could just tell me how to hang on to this moment, these girls, this age, just a little longer...
