One of my favorite times of day takes place when I am barely coherent. Before dawn breaks I am still sleeping and my 3 year old, Benson, crawls in my bed with his "baa-loo" (his blankie) and with still sleepy eyes he looks at me and says "Mom, I came to snuggle-bug with you".  He then snuggles up next to me, we sleep a little longer until the sun comes up and shines in through our big windows.  Benson and I stare out at the view together, I love the view and I love my boy next to me. It is a moment full of warmth and love.

I don't know if other people go through this, but when I think of moving I think about these kinds of moments.  And I start to mourn the idea of leaving our home where we share all of these wonderful memories.  I think about the living room where our daughter took her first steps or the backyard where our son learned to hit a ball with a plastic bat and even hit it over the fence for the first time. I think of the sidewalks where they learned to ride their bikes and the tree they planted with their dad.
When I was a teenager my family was preparing to move from my home of 10 years and I remember one night crying over the move (I was in my emotional teen years, so cut me some slack) and I had to force myself to ask a question. "What is it that you will miss?"  I took inventory.  It was not the rooms where my life had played out over the last ten years that was precious to me, it was really only the people.  I realized, the most important people were coming with me and that their was no reason that I could not visit the neighbors I had grown to love. These thoughts brought me great comfort and so I "let" my parents move our family.
The next time I move I will surely think of my morning memories with Benson and how the light would come through those big windows and slowly wake us up.  Maybe my next home will be vastly different from the one I have now, it won't have those same sidewalks or backyard, maybe I won't have those big windows, but as long as I have my Snuggle Bug by my side I will be home.
