these are the days

Recently my friend Nicola wrote a great post that included the lyrics to this song; one I used to listen to a lot. I've found it running through my head since then on more than one occasion.

These are the days
These are days you'll remember
Never before and never since, I promise
Will the whole world be warm as this
And as you feel it,
You'll know it's true
That you are blessed and lucky
It's true that you
Are touched by something
That will grow and bloom in you

These are days that you'll remember
When May is rushing over you
With desire to be part of the miracles
You see in every hour
You'll know it's true
That you are blessed and lucky
It's true that you are touched
By something that will grow and bloom in you

These are days
These are the days you might fill
With laughter until you break
These days you might feel
A shaft of light
Make its way across your face
And when you do
Then you'll know how it was meant to be
See the signs and know their meaning
It's true
Then you'll know how it was meant to be
Hear the signs and know they're speaking
To you, to you

lyrics by 10,000 Maniacs

Very similar to my post "Wise Words" from March 28th.
The photographs of the boys are fantastic.

Hi,

I found your blog from reading another blog and let me tell you I am happy I did. Your blog is so inspirational to me. I love your photos. I read your blog first thing every morning and it puts a smile on my face. I love your post today. Can I just say it seems your family is always enjoying the day. I love that and it helps me get through the day and makes me want to do more with my family.

Thank you and thank you for this awesome blog.

Makes me want to go hug my babies. It does fly by way too fast. My kids are all at really difficult ages right now... so when everything calms down at the end of the day, I am trying to reflect on the good parts. There are so many that I take for granted!

Your boys are getting SO big, by the way! It has been fun to watch them grow. I can tell they are happy little guys, full of life.
