Hey Momma, yeah, you with your hands full of blessings. First off, better full hands than empty ones right? I know you know that, but sometimes a reminder is nice when you’re knee deep in the thick of babies, toddlers, teens and in betweens. I thought we could visit for minute–because that’s all the time you’ve got–and because I just want to encourage you, not preach at you, tell you how to run your home, or manage your children. These days may be long but the years are definitely short. I know these days can stretch a momma with hands full pretty thin…most of us are at one time or another.
I want to encourage you momma. You’re doing a fine job. Sure you may be tired–exhausted even! You may live in yoga pants and a bun on top of your head, but you are a rock star to your little one. When they ask you to read the book one more time…do it; that dirty laundry will be there in fifteen minutes. When they want you to push them higher on the swing…do it; that Facebook update will be there fifteen minutes from now. When they ask you to lay down with them at night…do it; sooner rather than later they will be sleeping in their own dorm room, apartment or home. They won’t be just down the hall…and you’ll miss that.
These are the thoughts that have been rolling around my heart and mind lately. How quickly the “never ending day” really does go. And how too often I struggled to get through those long days and ended up missing some of the grace…I rushed right by it in a flurry of this, that and the other.
