The list could go on and on First Christmas (there were three), First bike, First bike without training wheels, first day of kinder garden, first smile, first tooth, first steps… I thank GOD daily for all the firsts he has given me. I’m three times blessed and I love every minute of it. I couldn’t imagine life without one of my blessings as they are imprinted onto my soul. They are my life and I celebrate their firsts as if they were my own. I feel their joy when they learn a new skill for the first time. I feel their pain when they are hurt, whether it is the first time or not. So much of life gets hectic and speeds by. I hope that I always remember to stop, slow down, and place into memory all those beautiful firsts, seconds, thirds….
