Yesterday was the first official day of spring break for my husband and two older children. The kids, my mother and I went to a new doctor for my middle son. The doctor is very naturally minded and listened to me. She spent over 1 1/2 hours with us. I feel really good about the visit and am hopeful about what will transpire as a result. I was so proud of how my older two children sat in the waiting area with my mother, and that all of the children were well-behaved when we stopped by the fabric store afterwards. I sure love those kids.
When we arrived home we found that my husband had been busy working on our new pool deck. The old one had gotten to a point where we weren’t sure it would make it another year. My older kids jumped right in to help and it was a joy to watch them at work. The two younger boys enjoyed playing outside all afternoon as well.
It is so cute to watch my littlest guy wandering around the yard exploring things that he has never seen before (except from the comfort of the sling). Oh, to experience life through the eyes of a child. What wonder and excitement they get from such simple things. How do we get so far removed from that as we age? I want to be filled with that same joy and wonder. There really is no reason to let the burdens of this world wear me down. God has blessed me with so much and I want to let Him fill me to overflowing, so that His love pours out of me.
