I’m so excited to it's the official first Magical Moment on Tuesday for HeartsMakeFamilies! For those of you visiting for the first time, the goal is to talk about one thing during the week that was magical to you. I mean that you were over the top about. It could be a project you completed, something your child did, a grand new idea, something you saw, etc. Something that was so magical that you have to tell us about it. I know. I know. This is why we all have blogs. But sometimes we just write about the negative things because we had a bad week. So if we all write about a Magical Moment then we might uplift another blogger. This is the very reason that I have this blog so that one day my children can see. You do not have to be a mom to do this. To join us, on Tuesday post what your Magical Moment was (add my button from the right side bar or link to me) and then be sure to stop here to link up and meet other moms at HeartsMakeFamilies to see what their Magical Moment was.
My Magical Moment was so simple this week. We were at my niece's 8th birthday party. My husband reached up and held my newest niece, Gabrielle, for the first time. He's terrified of little babies. It is the old big man versus little baby. Little baby always wins.
As you can see, his smile lit up half his face. This moment was a magical moment to me but it was also bittersweet. Now the reason that this was magical to me is that I had a flashback to the day that we brought Faith home. Nothing ever could compete with the feeling of happiness when we had our daughter in our own house for the first time. Nothing.
My babies, Faith and Jason on July 19, 2008. The first visit without a state chaperone.
