enjoy the minutes

my heart has been breaking lately for my college friend, amy, and nathan with the loss of their 14 month old boy, tucker.  i had only met tucker a couple times at church, but i can't imagine the anger/sadness/heartwrenching pain they are experiencing.  i have been so encouraged by all of the words amy and her sweet sister melissa have written after tucker's passing.  every time i put my boys down for naps i kiss and hug them a little longer.
this morning i read the letter nathan wrote and read at tucker's funeral and started bawling.  parker came up to me asking, "you sad, mommy?" and then "i'll wipe your tears."  children are such a precious gift from the Lord.  enjoy every minute you get to spend with them and say a prayer for amy and nathan this week (or every day).  love.
