Just read Our Family's Journey blog on how her children are growing up so fast. She wasn't lamenting or wistfully wishing that they would just stay little. She was thankful that she is able to watch and share as they grow into the people God plans for them to be.
That made me think of how big my boys are getting... how they are really growing up. At 11 and 8 1/2, they are all arms and legs. Seeing them sprawled on the sofa or on the floor makes me wonder if they will ever stop growing. At the end of the day, they are always hungry. Their clothes smell
all most of the time due to their being outside all the time riding their skateboards or practicing their baseball pitches. They call each other "dude". My youngest even has a little "swagger" when he walks. (I think that is a little affected... he is my "cool" child!) They have real conversations with Mike and me about important topics in their lives. They are definitely not little boys anymore.
Smocked jon jons are not in their closets. And their tennis shoes are not the little red rubber-toed Keds of past years.
And although I most certainly miss those days, I celebrate the ages they are RIGHT NOW!
to all of you...
