The Little Things
It has been so long since I have blogged. I have so many things I would like to write about, and I have changed the theme of my blog so many times that I just decided to call it “Mamas Ramblings”. I’ll write about everything :-)
Today I would like to focus on praising God for even the little things. Life has been super crazy lately that I have been finding it difficult to just stop and focus on the amazing things happening around me. My mind is always racing, life is so demanding, and most days I am physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally exhausted. My husband keeps reminding me to be content and praise God even through the trials. I always think “yeah, that’s easier said than done!” But maybe he is right. It wouldn’t hurt to try. I may not be perfect at praising and appreciating through the storms, and that’s okay, but it is better than constantly complaining. So here I go..
This morning, my almost 3 year old son was sitting on the couch nibbling on Cheerios and watching Curious George before heading off to his little school. My youngest son, almost 7 months old, was laying on the floor cooing while half crying for his milk, and staring at my oldest boy. I was walking up and down the stairs (trying not to be sick as I am still recovering from a flu), and as I was coming back down, I glanced at my almost 3 year old and saw him just smiling at his little brother as if to say “it’s okay, you’ll be okay”, which completely melted my heart. It was in that moment when looking at my oldest son I saw the kindest, sweetest, most gentle little person. I couldn’t be more proud. He is going to be an amazing big brother.
So while the storms whirl around me, I’ll be thankful to God for the blessings He has given me, and just picture my son’s beautiful smiling face.
