And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:8
If there's anything that can be said after now having 3 children, it's this:
I know how fast time flies.
It feels like just yesterday I held my babies in my arms. Nursed the twins through sleepless nights, and nestled with my 2 month old Ellie. They grow fast. You blink and their over 3 ft tall. Their sweet cuddles become heavier and heavier and go from cozy to clunky...all in a good way of course.
My sweet Ellie has brought so much change and grace to our home.
She has an extremely swift pace about her and there are days I fear shes outrunning me.
Change and grace all around.
It's not easy to absorb it when you're exhausted and on your last thread of hope, but if I were to offer any advice to any new Moma, it would be to soak it up and cherish it all.
loads of laughter
dancing in the rain
those rough stages
All of it.
As for me I will always have hope, I will praise you more and more. Psalm 71:14
(one of my favorites)
There will be a day where its all passed. Moments will be gone and not to return. Their clutter will be gone and you'll be wishing it back.
I want to learn to be continual in my habit of NOT rushing it to an even quicker pace. Last year flew by and with my other half away, I get caught up in wishing the now to pass quickly for his return.
Our days were crazy and chaotic, but I've learned to not rush it despite his absence. This is time that will never come again.
So I wake up and decide to live and enjoy the crazy, the busy, the silly.
I've been praying for my heart to reach this place;
To rid my mind of the unimportant and I finally feel like I'm there.
I pray that the Lord provides me all the things I need to continue to be the Moma my girls need. To provide continual support and unconditional love they deserve. To keep showing me ways to let their lights shine and mine along side them. I know with Him, I can do it.
