Cherished~~Five Minute Friday

01/18/2013 - Author: Jennifer - 14 Comments

Every Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker over at Tales from a Gypsy Mama gives us a word and a challenge. To write for 5 minutes without abandon. It is fun and I encourage you to try it. Here we go! The word is…


I remember snuggling my infant son and how I prayed to God that I would never forget this. Help me to always remember this moment. They say kids grow up fast, and I never doubted it, but I feel like my memory is like a sieve and I can’t remember the moments that I did cherish.

Life feels like a blur some days or some days are just REALLY hard and I need to cherish more moments with my son and my husband.

When the hard times come, and I know they will, I need to remember and cherish the promises God gave me and cherish the times He has led me through so I remember to rely on Him.

On days that my son is being a 2-year old and I feel like there is nothing good out of the day, I need to look for moments to cherish and once again pray, God please help me to never forget this~~to cherish these times because I won’t get them again.

Be blessed:)

  1. Hi! I just hopped over here from FMF. I also have a 2-year-old and can empathize with wanting to cherish these moments, yet yearning for just 10 seconds to breathe. Thank you for sharing! May there be some tender moments today to cherish.

  2. Oh, yes. Find those small things to remember and cherish. My girls are big now (10 and 12) and I realize I can’t remember for sure the last time they wanted to sleep in my bed. That makes me sad. But it makes the bedtime hour with the three year old sweeter, even if it takes FOREVER. I’ll be praying for those moments for you and room to breathe.

    • Thank you so much! I am so glad that you stopped by. Be blessed:)

  3. A reminder that I needed to hear so true, I often get wrapped up in the little things that I forget to cherish them!! Thank you for sharing!! Much love my friend.

  4. Amen, my friend!!!

  5. Oh yes. Baby girl is into everything right now too. Love your prayer. Blessings to you Friend!

  6. PS: love the new look! 🙂

  7. Love, prayers, and blessings to you.

  8. I’m not a mom, but I am finding myself in a place where I need to cherish the moment. I’m in that place between graduation and employment, learning to dance in the hallway until God opens the next door. Thanks for sharing!

    • I am so glad that you could still related to this post! That blessed me. Thank you for stopping by and be blessed:)
