Sap cycles and lunar eclipses....

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

This morning at 3:00, I woke my children up to see the lunar eclipse. Suprisingly, they all climbed out of bed and came with me. It was pretty cool and as they stood rubbing their eyes (16, 14, and 12), I was reminded of the time I dragged a ladder out and climbed a tree in our front yard.
The goal was a sap cycle that had formed about 10 feet up off a branch. I just had to have them taste it, because the sugary ice cycles don't form that often. It was only slightly sugary, but as I watched their eyes light up, I was glad I had made the effort. I guess my point is, take time to make memories with the ones you love. That is what life is all about !

    Somehow happened upon your page and loved reading this. You are so right; it's worth that extra effort for forever memories. Good for you (and everyone else, too!)

    Great post........and I absolutely agree! My "little ones" are now 23 and 26..........those memories we made at the oddest times are the ones I treasure the most. Now building them with my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter. Thanks for the reminder today of what's important.

    Couldn't agree more! Those moments are the ones you treasure.
