You've heard the expression...

"The days are long, but the years are short."

And as cliche as that is, it's so true.

But when I met Erica, it was evident to me that she knew this truth.

The way she embraces each season, each child, each laugh, each moment,

you can tell she doesn't take any of it for granted.

The Hentrich session reminded me to enjoy life, enjoy the kids (even when they're wild),

let them be little. Let them play, let them run, let them tickle and scream and just be kids.

Before long it'll be quiet. And the house will stay clean.

But for now, enjoy the sound of little feet running through the hall.

Be thankful. Be grateful. Count your blessings and enjoy today.
