Fleeting Moments

Do you remember being little and the only three things you lived for were Christmas, your Birthday and the last day of school? All the days in between those seemed to drag on. The 24 days before Christmas were sheer torture. As I rocked Lucy to sleep today for her nap, I was stewing over the things that needed to be done this afternoon. Laundry, dishes, dinner, gardening, etc. Then it dawned on me that my almost 5 year old was in the other room sleeping and I did not get to rock her to sleep. It took all I had not to go in there and pick her up. Thank you God for my beautiful children. May I be reminded daily that they are a gift from you and that I should cherish every moment I have with them.

Kate~ So true. Maddison soon will be 10, Hannah Jane 8, and Mikel Ann just turned 7. It seems like only yesterday I was begging for another set of arms when nap time rolled around. It is amazing how much our children can teach us about our heavenly Fathers love for us... It is totally Amazing!
