My Heart is Full
Yesterday I was feeling a little put upon that I was in the kitchen making three meals a day plus snacks from scratch when I realized that five years ago I didn't know if I would be blessed to see this day. Yes it can be tiring to cook all of our meals and homeschooling our blessings. It can be hard to wake up before the rest of the family for some much needed quiet time with my Lord. The days are long when all five of the children and the dog are running wild and screaming/barking at the top of their lungs...but I wouldn't trade these days for anything. I always tell myself that I'm going to miss these days... some day I'll wake up when I want to and do what I want...all day long. I'll be able to go somewhere without all five kids begging to go with me and I'll be able to have a phone conversation without being interrupted every 3.5 seconds.
But right now I can enjoy watching our 17 month old ask her oldest sister (8) to tickle her...and watch our almost 4 year old play babies with my baby. I can watch my 6 year old "teach" our almost 4 year old her colors and shapes. My oldest is almost 11 and he loves nothing more than cuddling the "baby" and making her smile. These days won't last forever but the memories will and for that I'm grateful!
