The little ones...
All to often our kids do something that causes jaws to drop and tempers to be tested. I had one of those weeks last week and my patience was defiantly put to the test!
And then there are those moments where you catch a glimpse of your daughter and feel this overwhelming feeling of adoration over comes you. You see her as she ought to be seen, as a daughter of God. Their endearing spirit warms theirs eyes and the innocents of childhood is on display for us to remember if only for that fleeting moment.
I need to take the time more often to honor that innocents. To embrace that gentle spirit I have been blessed to have in my home. I feel that I let those moments slip by all too often. I get caught up in all they do wrong and forget to recognize all that they do right.
For sure my children will be my greatest teachers. They teach me how to relax. How to laugh in the face of pain. How to comfort and cheer up others. They remind me laugh and laugh often. They teach me to try again and never give up, to be happy even if just minutes ago I was disappointed or discourages. They have and will continue to teach me the life lessons that only a child could pass on.
I feel blessed to have been given my sweet little girls. How amazing, how loving and how innocent these sweet spirits!
Macy is my sunshine. She has the best stories and is always willing to forgive. She'll entertain us for hours with her songs, performances and made up imaginary friends that she always includes in all her activities. She is a caring and giving sister with the ability to make us all wish we were a child once again just so we could be her friend. I love my Mace.
Blue is our tender heart. She melts into your embrace and gives into snuggles like I have never felt before. Her eyes and smile are nothing short of beautiful. She is tender and calm and ever soaking in all she hears and learns. Her sweet voice can always induce a smile even amongst strangers. Her hugs to me feel like what love would feel like if we could wrap our arms around the word. Oh my dear sweet Blue Bird!
What was life like before we had these babies? I am realizing why we are sent children. My children have become the perfect reminders of how our Heavenly father feels about us. Pure love! Now I know what all our parents meant when they said " you will never know how much I love you until you have a child of your own." I can Imagine that's how it works with our Heavenly Father as well.
I count my blessings starting with my Macy and Molly Blue!!!!
