Sitting there watching the high energy boy run back and forth between "catching" and chucking a football and then running and tackling his dad on the ground I had to praise God. What a sweet sweet morning He has given us!! What an incredible memory for us to be able to look back on!!
Too often that "needyness" from a toddler can seem overwhelming. And it can add an extra strain on the exhaustion we already seem to be struggling with. BUT then God shows us that this truly is a sweet time of a little boy just wanting his parents to be with him. There may come a day that we desire to be involved but Micah grows out of it. It was truly a gracious reminder to savor these years. Thank you God. Thank you for this morning. Thank you for this sweet memory with our precious family. Thank you for these precious years that we are so near and dear to these little ones. Thank you God for helping us to look at them and not around them.
