A note to the parents will little kiddos at home...
These days won't return.
They aren't going to tack any 'I owe you's' onto the end.
Yes, it's tough.
Yes, it's a grind.
Yes, it's relentless.
When we ONLY focus on the challenge that's all we're able to see.
But life is so much more.
It requires all of you - every single day.
So how do we find space in mind to realize how special these days are?
The innocence and naivety carry their own brand of bliss.
The early morning hours in a quiet paint store or the bedtime hours with your toddler reading their books in your bed...it's such an amazing blessing.
Let it be one.
Yes, you long for space.
That peaceful focus that comes from time alone.
It's rare and never promised.
But someday, you'll miss these days.
Someday it will be quiet with no choice for the alternative crazy in a house with littles.
These days are coming and going at blinding speeds.
Stay in it.
Be where you are.
Enjoy it while you can.
