My kitchen window frames in my world. I can see them running and playing, swimming and jumping all from my kitchen window. They keep drawing me away from my work. I will see them laughing and playing and I have to stop and go sit a spell. Enjoying the beauty of water when their little bodies run through it.
My kitchen window frames the lessons I try to teach them. What keeps them close is that they share a life here and I never let them forget that. They share life together and life is for those who work it out. Don't hold grudges and forgive always. I try and remind them ever so gently (ok, so I am told that it is not that gently :) of their own short comings and how they have been forgiven much and so they're required to forgive.
Boys never let me forget how to have fun. They make me H-A-P-P-Y..They make my work a reward. They make my heart pitter- patter.The good times far out weigh the bad times and they know that life is good for them on this farm. Brothers are not allowed to tease little sisters and little sisters are not allowed to be brats to brothers. Simple courtesies that cultivate love and respect. Time spent working together and then lots of time spent playing together and eating Popsicles, swimming, riding bikes, watching movies with a big bowl of popcorn. It's a balancing act but I love making them laugh and
I love watching them be kids and run and jump and change clothes for the tenth time in one day(which I don't love so much).
My water bill is higher but they're happy and I'm happy so life is good.
This little guy will change the way you feel about the color brown.
He will make you wish you had three more just like him. He will make you
crave chocolate brownies and chocolate ice cream. He will make you crave the chocolate
fudge that slides down a bowl of vanilla ice cream.
He makes me happy :) I'm just saying...
I give God the glory for giving me the most wonderful, priceless gifts in the world.
Enjoy the gifts he has given you. Don't let this day be without laughter, fun, and craziness.
Throw caution to the wind and enjoy the gifts that God has graciously loaned to you.
Let the world know that motherhood is Fun and wonderful..
Oh, and don't forget to look out your kitchen window.
and when you do? think of me..:)
