Summer Lovin’


I love the way you explore the world with endless wonder.  Toddling uncertainly, I can see you becoming braver and more courageous as you discover your surroundings.  I pray that I won’t lose sight of my patience when I wait, and watch, while you hover over a parade of ants marching down the rocky sidewalk. 

My heart soars when, in the midst of cleaning, organizing, and preparing – you play and giggle and “help” in your own special way.  And then you approach me.  “Uh, uh” (up, up) you request, climbing over my sweaty legs with your own sticky skin.  Unphased by my growing baby bump, you settle in, resting your head for a few blissful minutes.

This time – this precious fleeting moment – reminds me to stop and savor all that you are every minute of every day.

  1. Absolutely precious!! Time slips away so quickly. I remember as a child thinking “a whole day” when I had to wait for something. Now, it seems a week passes by with a blink of an eye.

    I recently pulled out home videos from the late 90’s and early 2000. They are so amazing to watch and remember but also a little sad. Hard to believe that Jacob, my first precious little one, is now 11 and starting sixth grade.

    Stop and savor as many of these priceless memories that you can. And remember, there is no such thing as too many pictures and vidoes. You’ll be glad you have them later on.

    Thinking of you as you await another precious miracle.

    Much love,

    (Just had a memory pop into my head…remember the giant birthday chocolate chip cookie cake we tried to make your mom & surprise her with after church? 🙂 Just wait until your own little ones start doing things for you such as that.)
