Today I just really loved on my children. Sometimes I get these moments where I am completely overwhelmed with love for these two boys. Today was just a normal ordinary day. But I feel like God let me get a glimpse of just how precious children are to Him. I have been asking Him to.
At the breakfast table Noah was attempting to eat cereal with milk in it. Such a big kid thing to do. He looked at me and asked, " Mommy? When I am a big kid can I have some new big kid toys?Like that light thing. You know a light saver. After I watch the star movie with Daddy. Then I will be a big kid." apparently watching Star Wars is a passage into big kidhood. It was so adorable. I wanted to stop and take some mental pictures of this little three year old wishing to be a big kid.
Later in the afternoon I was rousing from an afternoon nap during a round of thunderstorms. Noah very sleepily sauntered into my room in his t shirt with Diego underwear chewing on his Spots and climbed into my bed. And burrowed into my arms. I held him tight. He is often too busy for snuggles. I thought about how eighteen is not that far away and how precious this small moment is. I prayed silently to never forget this sweet moment. And I was just simply overwhelmed with love for this small boy.
Miller is just plain delightful these days. A constant smile plastered to his precious little face. Tonight when I was rocking him he reached up and stroked my face and I just about melted on the spot.
People ask me if I am enjoying my summer.....
Oh yes. I am simply soaking it up.
