I have become somewhat of an observer instead of the main mover in our family.
My favorite thing about watching from a distance is really SEEING my cute kids.
I've always been pretty good at catching the moments, but these days, I get teary all the time.
I feel so blessed to be THEIR mother.
I love how helpful the kids are, especially how they teach their little sisters.
I love how they play together so well.
I love watching them play alone.
I love how smart they are and how they find joy in making books or coloring or writing long math problems or doing "homework".
The world will tell you what a lot of work children are.
And, that is true.
But, children are great gifts.
Children bring a fullness and a JOY to your life that you will never get from anything else in the world.
My life is good.
