Life is short. I see that so much more now as I watch my little ones grow. It is precious and sweet, and too many times we let our lives run on auto-pilot. We find ourselves feeling frustrated with the messes, the talking back, the whining and the crying. We tend to feel bitter that we've become "frumpy house wives" who spend all day doing things for others instead of ourselves. I have been feeling lately that this "job" I've been given is the Most important thing I will EVER do. These precious spirits are only with us for a fraction of our lives. How important it is for us to cherish the sweet times and try to laugh at their "childishness". Lets not take everything so seriously and remember that they are learning. The Lord gave them to us, and at any time he could have them back. I honestly never thought I could feel love like this. My heart swells with Emotion when I think about how quickly the time passes. So with that said, I wanted to share a Blog Post that a friend posted. I hope she doesn't mind. I think everyone could benefit from reading this story.
