The miracle of just them




....that living my life poured out is always worth it.
Sharing a simple apple and holding it there so when
she comes back she knows.
Playing at the park until they're so tired they fall
asleep as soon as the engine starts.
Looking in my rearview mirror and seeing
the ticking of time and feeling it more these days.
Sharing the day and when the stars come out
sharing my night time also until I honestly 
believe I have not one ounce of  me anywhere in sight.
Who have I become? Where is God leading me?
I don't feel the rush. I don't feel the longing to be away
for a while. I feel like I need every minute training and teaching
and loving and being their mama.
I grab my bible and laying in bed I lift up my day
to my Father and strain to hear Him say,
"Well done, Robin, you were faithful today
to what I have called you to. Now get some rest
and tomorrow you will do the same exact thing
and this time try and learn to slow down a bit more
and enjoy them alot more."
Oh, Lord, help me always
to enjoy them more and never miss the miracle
of just them.
