Counting it all Joy

Because sometimes you just need to let your guard down and have some fun!
Heading to the park on the first day of February and finding out we are the only ones there! Slides and swings all to ourselves! What a treat!
Letting them slide on the slides knowing their bottoms are going to get wet, due to the previous nights rain!
Ice cream for lunch? Why not!
Because one day, this is all going to come to an end. This wanting to play endlessly for hours on the swings and slide.
Begging mama to play hide and seek behind the trees and freeze tag!
Finding the clues to solving the most perfect of mysteries!
Telling secrets and laughing so hard, together, as brother and sister!
Being little kids!

I am determined to keep them little for as long as I can. No rushing through these little years for us! For these blessings of mine are growing up faster than I care to admit. And I am going to be selfish and greedy and wish for time to slow down, knowing that it can't, but still hoping anyway!
I have been given this amazing opportunity to be their mama and I am going to do my best to enjoy as much of it as I can! Counting it all as joy!

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. ~ Colossians 2:6-7
