At our church’s Sunday School Christmas concert Hannah (who is two) had a line to welcome everyone to the program: “Sit back and enjoy” she said. It was basically the cutest thing ever (besides, of course, the lines that her sisters said … but those don’t apply at the moment.)
This morning I read a beautiful blog post! Naturally I read it after my eight year old and I had a blow out about none other than a frickin Leprechaun Trap (I know, truly). HERE is the link to that post, please pop over there and read it. She is much more eloquent than I so it’s an easy read and it’s such a lovely reminder for all of us that are “in the thick of it”.
Most days I feel like we do very well to enjoy the little things and to realize how blessed we are and how quickly the time goes (oh look! I’m on that again … *eye roll*). Every day I am amazed at how much and how quickly my kids have grown … especially when someone says something to me like “before you know it Grace will be driving” … and I quickly tell them to shut the heck up! Honestly I can’t think about it too much because it makes me so sad … before we know it I will be the elderly woman on the beach longing for the days of yelling at my daughter about a Leprechaun.
