Currently snow is melting from yesterday's snow fall. First day of Spring was last week. This weather so reminds me and is a comforting reminder from God that right now. The little years with my boys, is only for a season. Only for a time. It will all melt away and be gone before I know it and I will only be left with the memories of "Remember when…"
It is tough being a momma. It is tough to have those days where the kids are whiny or throwing tantrums. But I have come to realize- I enjoy these moments.
I enjoy seeing endless laundry- It reminds me of how thankful I am to have shelter and clothing for my kiddos.
I enjoy those days they are sick because they want to cuddle- it reminds me of when they were first born.
I enjoy arms reaching up to me and calling me "Mommy, Momma, etc. " - It reminds me of those late night feedings where it was just us two enjoying each other's company.
I encourage each of you to ENJOY these little years. I know it is tough, trust me. I have the strong willed child :)
Soon they will be teenagers and raiding my fridge. Of course my youngest does now so what am I talking about?
My devotions brought this verse to me and I am passing it on to you
"For the Lord is GOOD; His steadfast love endures forever, and His FAITHFULNESS to ALL generations." Psalm 100:5
Be encouraged for His faithfulness is with you and your littles.
