The days here are getting longer and warmer which is a blessing to all of us. The children are spending more hours of the day outside rather than inside. Laughter and tears seem to be heard in the distance around this place. Laughter of many fond memories that the children are making and tears of many scraped knees. All of these are sounds that I try to record into my memory because I know that someday it will be quiet. We as mother's are so busy and sometimes forget to stop and lavish in the Joy of our children. I am guilty of this many times over. But each night when I lay in bed and reflect over the day's events I smile and can seem to only remember the joyful times of the day. I thank the Lord for blessing me with those moments and taking the bad moments away. What a great God we serve. I will end this post with a quote from my ten year old, "I don't know what it would be like without Jesus."
