These are the moments

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."~Matthew 19:14

As I was leaving this morning, after giving my wonderful children hugs and kisses and telling them I love them. I was about to walk out the door and Caleb said “mommy you have a great day at work!” That just made my heart melt. Josh’s dad asked Caleb why he was buttering me up for he responded “Because she is special!” Okay I had tears in my eyes about this time. Josh dad then said “why is she special”…”because I love her!!” I said “Caleb I love you too” and had to leave because my eyes were filled with a lot of tears, tears of joy! These are moments that I hold tight in my heart. Ok so I am adding something new since this morning, at the dinner table tonight Caleb said "mommy you are the best mommy in the whole world!" Man I can not begin to tell you how much God just knew that I needed those words from my children since I have not been at home with them and Caleb is just so sweet with his words!!

Let me tell you becoming a mother has brought me to a different level of my relationship with God, it has actually brought me closer, having my kids as made me think a lot about my relationship with Him. I really want to dig deep because I want to be the best I can be for them and I know that He is the only one who can help me with that. I want to be able to give the answers from the word, when they ask those tough little questions. Like Caleb has already asked questions like…how is God everywhere? How does He live in my heart? And they have made me rethink my actions as well. I am not a morning person but I have found that I needed to be for them, how can I be in a bad mood when I wake up to them. So now I sing a song just about every morning, and Caleb sings it with me. I sing “Rise and Shine and give God the glory, glory!!!” And it just seems to put me in such a great mood, I make more of an effort to just smile and be joyful because I do have a choice to be that way. Now not every morning or even everyday am I that way but I do try really hard to do so. I cherish all the moments I do have because they are only that for a moment, but they hold tight to my heart. I really just want to go on and on of all the moments that stick out like Taylor saying “es ham” (yes ma’am) or “I elp ooo” (I help you), Taylor running around the house yelling “FOOTBALL!!!” when he sees anything related to football. I could tell you numerous jokes that Caleb has said, many you have seen on facebook …”the car is outside mommy” J “His wonderful Christmas list”. Ok see I told you I could go on. ~This is the day the LORD has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it
