Learning From Our Children



Sometimes being a mom is hard.

We wonder...if we're doing a good job.

If we're doing too much,
or too little.

If we are giving them enough time...
and enough attention.

If we took enough time to teach...
to discipline...
to talk...
to listen.

We pray for wisdom... guidance... patience...
understanding and for the answers...

Then God has a way of reminding us
that the answers can be found in them.

In watching...
the quiet, content, spirit of a sweet new baby girl...


the determination of a strong willed big sister


and the happy, carefree attitude of a little boy...


To remember...

to just be still and take it all in.


keep giving it our all...


take the time to laugh, be silly,
and not take ourselves too seriously


Because in the end,
what they will remember the most...

is that we were always there for them


and most importantly, love was always present
