Little Ones

Holding this little guy helped me get my baby fix. See I'm not quite ready to have another little one yet, but I'm also not ready to close that chapter of my life either. So whenever I have a chance to hold a little bundle I take it.

When I'm holding a precious gift from God, I can't help but be reminded of what a miracle birth, life, and motherhood really is. How fortunate we are to be entrusted with these sweet little spirits. To have the chance to love them with all of our hearts, and teach them right from wrong. With the hope that one day we can send them out in this very cruel world and pray that all the skills we have taught them are used so that they can stand on their own. Eventually starting this circle of life all over again.

My Uncle T once told me, little ones are sent to us on loan from God. I sometimes have to remind myself about this. I sometimes have moments of perfect clarity when I look at my girls and realize that sooner, rather than later, I will be holing their children in my arms.

For now, I'll try to remember to hold them just a little tighter. To be just a little more patient. To laugh a little more & be a little less serious. To enjoy these beautiful little girls now. They grow too quickly. Because I still haven't forgotten all those sleepless nights, for now I'll just enjoy those baby fixes. 

Thanks Jennifer for coming over for a visit with your newest addition. We love you guys!

Little ones are such a sweet blessing from God. Such a sweet little one and your girls are just so precious. Definitely hold them a little longer.
