So yesterday afternoon, my Gdawg stuffed a nerf gun, a birthday present and a ball cap in his back pack…along with a small piece of his Lola’s heart…and hopped on his bike to ride four blocks up the way to a birthday party.
All by himself.
Four long blocks where you turn corners and are out of sight from the woman who used to rock you til you fell asleep and then wouldn’t put you down because she knew this day would come.
I went back in and put his little sister to her nap…and I may have held her a little longer than I needed to.
Then I went and put Joely Bear down and I spent some extra time watching his chest rise and fall and those lashes that go on for days rest on his chubby cheeks.
And finally I went down and sat extra close the one who tries so hard to keep up with and outdo, whenever possible, the kiddo who was running around in some yard four blocks away with about ten thousand angels surrounding him…if God answered all my prayers.
So all you mommies and daddies…grandma’s and grandpa’s….don’t blink.
Don’t miss a minute.
Soak in the every day’s because…
it is in the ordinary that God pours out His richest treasures <3
