Blessed Everyday in the Miracles

{Trying to get Caleb to smile and look at the camera at the same time can, at most times, be a trying feat. Hence the reason his tongue is sticking out in this pic and Emma looks upset that he will not cooperate!}

They make me laugh. Everyday!
Their little quirks and out-of-nowhere repeats of what they once heard mama or daddy say has me wondering most days, "how did they remember that?".
It is truly amazing to me how much their little minds are soaking up and learning, all on their own, each and everyday!
One day they start to crawl then walk and it's like, "how did that happen? I never taught them that!"
They start to talk putting sentences together right before my eyes. Helping themselves to fruit and juice in the kitchen. Feeding the dogs, making their beds, putting their clothes away once mama has them washed and folded. These little miracles growing up ever so quickly right in front of me.
And if I am too busy, I will miss it. Miss out on all the little blessings these little miracles give to me in one day!

God gifted these children to me! I know they belong to Him and are essentially on "loan" to me, so while we are here on this earth together, I want to enjoy every moment with them. The good and the bad. The hard and the easy. The laughter, tears, triumphs, failures. Because they all exist in each and everyone of our lives. I want to show my children how to praise God in the good and the bad, as I am learning to do in my own life.

I want to be present through it all. Since I cannot have a video camera on 24/7 catching it all so I don't forget, I want to be available to witness it all - as much as I can - and cherish, saving the memory in my mind and my heart.

Maybe it is the pregnancy hormones really kicking in, or the fact that we just celebrated Mother's Day, but I have been feeling extra sentimental towards my children lately and how truly blessed I really am. I am in awe of how loving and giving my Jesus is! Everytime I look into their little faces, I am reminded of just how much He loves me!
