My season


The days are a blur with the tasks at hand.
Knowing I only have a few months of getting up at night.

The early morning bottles will soon pass also.

Constantly growing

and changing, needing me less and less

to comfort

and feed.

A season is all I have..

Scott and I pass each other

knowing that, yes, we're tired but

this season is quickly changing.
Their eyes opening wider everyday.

Their smiles are more and more.

Their cries, familiar to me.

A deep satisfaction watching

bothers and sisters

take care of the least of these.

Knowing that this is a privilege,

an honor

to be a mom.

No complaints on my end will you hear.

I'm right in the middle

of a grand adventure of the Lord's kind

and

I will enjoy every moment.

The Lord has given me

and granted me the privilege

of being

busy at home

and

I'm thankful.

That was beautiful! So many moms complain about how hard life is. To see a mom who is truly thankful to be what she is and she is is wonderful!
