2 Sweet Children

Today had it's ups and downs, but it was a pretty good day over all. There were two things that my children did that made me glad I am a mom and that they are my children.

1. I was downstairs checking my e-mail while supper was in the oven. Sara came down and said "Mommy (about 3 times before I finally answered), come upstairs. I want to show you something!" I didn't like being interrupted, so I replied, "Well, can it wait or will it go away?" She said it could wait. I finished typing my e-mail and she actually waited very sweetly. Sara's not the most patient child, but this time she was! When I was ready, she eagerly led me upstairs. She had decorated the table with her big, soft flowers, carefully arranged in mugs, along with her little battery powered lantern. It was so pretty and so thoughtful! It was just what I needed to make supper extra special and remind me what an extra sweet daughter I have! I took a picture because I wanted you to see it.

2. As I was making the final supper preparations, Sky was wanting me to play "I Spy" with him. I was absentmindedly trying to oblidge, while still doing what I needed to do. After a few rounds of me not really getting into the spirit, Sky said, "I spy with my little eye something that's cute, and always gives me butterfly kisses, and Eskimo kisses (rubbing noses), and sweet kisses!" I was like, "What?" He repeated it and I said, "Are you talking about ME?" He gleefully confirmed that he was and I said, "Did you just call me cute?" He gave me a big hug and said, "Yes, because you're my mommy and you're cute!" What a little charmer! He always knows how to make me smile!

Joshua update: He got all his luggage, safe and sound, before lunch. He had a good day skiing, with no injuries to report so far!

Isn't it wonderful that God gives us times like this to let us know that motherhood is worth it all. Treasure these times in your heart!

Just read your sweet children note, I can't believe they are big enough to do those things! Time flies. I miss you guys. Haven't found many people I can be real with like ya'll.
