Cherish


The other day Caleb and I were in Target and this little girl, couldn’t have been older than 3 got away from her mother and started running and scream, playing. Her mother started chasing after her, telling her to stop and not yell. Caleb and I just stopped and watch this go on. Then Caleb turned to me and said, mom are you ready for that? In a “I’m not sure if I’m ready for that” voice. 

I smiled big and said, I can’t wait.

Let’s be honest mamas, how many times have our kids thrown a tantrum in public and you thought to yourself, oh Lord this child is going to make me go crazy? Or how about, I will leave you here and let someone else take you? Ok maybe that was just me. LOL

God has a funny way of showing you the beauty in all things and in all seasons. It wasn’t until I heard the words, “he may have trouble reaching his milestone” did a tantrum look so beautiful.

The truth is, we don’t know what our future looks like. The doctors could be right. But God could also prove them wrong. But whatever the future holds, I have learned that every single moment with my children, is beautiful. The good, the bad, the ugly, the tantrums, all of it. 

Enjoy your children today. Cherish those moments, all of them.

“But I will hope continually, and will praise you yet more and more.” Psalms 71:14
