Soaking up the moments.
Our kids helped set the table for dinner and I finished getting the last few items together. It was quiet today. We stayed at home and just played. No obligations and nothing really productive. We lived in the moment.
The last few dishes are now on the table and we all take a seat. This is of course after our kids shout, "Sit by me! Sit by me!"
I look over and our son is reaching out his arms from his high chair so we can hold hands around the table and pray. Each child likes to take a turn talking to God. Even our little guy mumbled words under his breath.
If I had been rushing through the day and eager to get through dinner so we can run upstairs and do bath time I think I would have missed this moment. My heart and attitude would not have been in a place to see what a blessing it is to have our children begging to take a turn to talk to God.
Thank you God for reminding me to soak up the moments. They go by so fast and I know I miss so many when I run through life.
