A LITTLE SECRET TO MY JOY

  • Hello! Im doing MUCH better today! Yesterday was interesting, but I woke up today to blue skies, gorgeous sun and my precious family. 

     

    This morning, I was reminded just how much I LOVE having children. When I think about what it would be like without these little people in my life, I feel this sense of emptiness. God knew what He was doing when he put these two in my midst. Things are way more exciting, never dull and so unpredictable. I wouldn't have it any other way. 

     

    Today, I got to work in Daniel's preschool class and I witnessed, for the first time, him writing his name down without looking at his letters. He was class leader earlier as well, which means he stood up in front with teacher Kim, and explained what day of the week it was and counted the days and lead the class lines to and from recess. I was so proud to be able to witness this today. He left with a basket full of Valentine's Goodies and notes from his classmates, {since he was away during the class Valentine's Day party} and just seeing him so grown up and full of joy REFRESHED my soul! Ashton came home from school with ripped jeans and mud from head to toe and when I asked how his day was (haha) he said great, he got to play soccer and had a grin from ear to ear. That filled my cup, and that was enough for me- music to my ears! 

     

     Kids are a breath of fresh air. They are so beautiful. Even on days that are messy, or during their Lego throwing fights in their room, {Daniel had a bloody lip yesterday from one and was still dancing with gauze on it} There's still good out of it! They are still honest, and joyful and good. Loud and sometimes violent, but good. 

     

    I woke up feeling so Blessed. So thankful. I am going to sleep feeling the same.
