I was cleaning up outside today and came upon Charles' and Jay's shoes. I had not realized how big Jay's feet had gotten. Wow!! Of course, as a Mom, I started getting a little sad. Where has the time gone? Where have I been? Am I being the best Mom I can be to these sweet children who are growing far too quickly? It felt as though God was reminding me that they were not going to be little forever.
I can get in those moods when I am wondering when they will ever grow up and be able to do things for themselves like pick up their things or do their own laundry. But, today, I needed to be reminded that all of those things will come, sooner than I think. For now, I need to ENJOY where we are. Thank you, God, for the reminder!
