You ever have one of those days where you are so amazed by your children? That happens to me just about everyday!
Amariah my oldest, who is 3, she has such a good memory and is so sweet! I was in the bathroom straitening my hair when she came in to do her business. Anyway she looks at me with those big, green, beautiful eyes and says, "Mommy, why are you so pretty?" Now mind you I am still in my pj's with one part of my har strait and the other part in a hideous, frizzy bun, but it doesn't matter what I look like or where I am this girl can open her mouth and melt my heart! I just can't believe how much love I have for her and not only that how much love she has for me! I can be feeling so low and she can lift me so high! I know that I know that God has used my little girl so many times to remind me of His love for me!
Now my little 11 month old, Aviya, lol! What can I say...she is my mini-me! She has been walking since she was about 9-1/2 months and she is so independent. She has so much joy for life and learning all that she can about it. Her personality is just hilarious, it is so neat watching her and Amariah play together; I am so blessed!
There are so many women I know who would love to have the abilty to stay home with their children but can't. I really feel for them. There are definately times that I miss working and just geting out but I know that if I did I would just be missing Amariah and Aviya and thinking about them all day long. I am so grateful for this position and I don't take it for granted, not one day! My children teach me so much about God's love, forgiveness, and the abilty to just enjoy life wherever you are. I love that quote, "Bloom where you are planted." I hope my girls are learning as ,uch from me as I am from them. Thank you Lord for your constant wispers of Love through Amariah and Aviya!
