Savor the Moments

Savor the moments........
I have never heard an older, wiser, lady say 
"I wish I would've worked more when my kids were little"....

What do you hear?

They all say....
"It goes by so fast... I wish I would've spent more
 time with my kids when they were little"

Proverbs 19:20
"Listen to counsel and receive instruction, That you may be wise in your latter days"

I choose to take the advice from these older women who are past their "years in the trenches" with littles.

I do not want to look back with my gray hair and regret not... baking one more cake with my toddlers....... going down the slide one more time....... building one more giant tent in the living room....... making another mud-pie.... reading just 1 more book....... or miss out on the 1,000th game of 
Hungry Hungry Hippo...

I want to invest my time into the training of my children for the Lord.

Proverbs 22:6
"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he
 is old he will not depart from it"

I was thinking today what a privilege it is to have been chosen to be the mother of my children......
I mean God picked me to be their mom! WOW!!! What an honor!.....Chosen....
Soak that in for a minute..

I mean really think about it.... He picked you... He ENTRUSTED you....with souls to train for His glory... Wow! It's very humbling and I feel honored that he would give me this responsibility.....
I want Him to look at me as a faithful servant with whom he is well pleased. 

Believe me.... I'm in prayer daily seeking his guidance and wisdom in how he wants me to raise these babies. There is no way this selfish girl could accomplish such a task without the Lord... Thank you for grace!

I'm excited, pumped, and giddy about this Journey of Motherhood that I'm on-
