Mojo Surprise

Welcome to the Mojo Monday Surprise Blog Hop for Julee Tilman.  Hopefully you have come from Maureen's blog.  If not, you will want to head back to Teresa's blog for the whole hop list,  so you don't miss a bit of today's fun!

If you know Verve, then you know Julee is the Owner/Designer Extraordinaire.  Julee and her husband are just about 4 weeks away from twin baby boys and this hop is to congratulate the expectant couple and welcome those baby boys. 

Babies are such a blessing!  I got an afternoon of cuddles, just yesterday, with our neighbor's 5 day old baby boy.  I can barely remember when my daughter was so little and now she is five years old.  Time speeds by so quickly when children are young.  My husband often says, "I am never going to get this day back" and I am always reminded when he says this to make the most of my time with my family and really truly connect with them. 

My wish for Julee and Mark is that they get to be fully present in the lives of their boys each and every day.  Find the joy in each day of development and witness the miracle that is your children.  Don't sweat the small stuff because those babies will not!  And for goodness sake, don't make my mistake...sleep when those babies sleep!

Thanks for stopping by here, you next stop is the wonderful Wanda Cullen!
