This is for all my mama friends who wonder if what they do for their children is enough.
As our rocking chair creaks in the quiet gloom, my toddler sprawls across me in a sleepy heap. Her heart beating beside mine.
I’m fairly certain it’s the first time she’s been still since the sun woke her oh so early this morning. Her day was filled with colors, shapes, singing, and laughter. Mine with dishes, diapers, and errands that never seem to end.
Now as we glide back-and-forth in our chair, I look at her sleeping face and wonder where the day went.
And why didn’t we blow more bubbles?
But then I think of all the small moments we captured.
How our race cars zoomed down the hall.
Or the sound of her giggles as our laundry basket rowboat and wooden spatula carried us to safety.
How she sloshed water everywhere as we dove for treasure in our bath tub sea. Then how we jammed in our jammies to Jesus Loves Me.
Tomorrow they’ll be more bubbles...and sparkles...and glitter.
But for now, I’ll praise the Lord for the small moments I captured today.
Capture the small moments friends. You are enough.
