A thankful Heart

I’m feeling very thankful today….

…thankful for these four with all of their silliness….

…and thankful for the man I was so lucky to spend one whole week with…

…and thankful for safe travels.

Even though we had a fabulous time in Hawaii….

I must confess that part of my soul….. even part of my physical body…. was missing.

I love my children… like any mother does….

…. and like any mother, I may occasionally fantasize about getting away for just a bit….

….away from the noise and chaos.

But what I did not realize is just HOW MUCH I would miss these little fingers and mischievous grins….

….and just HOW MUCH my heart would ache the whole time I was away…..

… and just HOW MUCH I couldn’t wait to get home and have these little arms wrapped around my neck….

….. and just HOW MUCH I would LOVE to hear the words, “Mom, I wuv you.”

Ah…. the life of a mother…. I’m sure I will feel this way forever…..

So for now…. I’m basking in the sticky love, the happy voices, the warm hugs, and yes, even the bickering and complaining….

…just to hear a little girl sing her precious songs and ask, “Did you like that one?”

….and have a little boy joyously wrap his arms around me and tell me how much he missed me ….

…..to watch the sparkle in a bigger boy’s eyes as he shows me the surprise he had waiting for me….

….and to wrap my arms around the biggest boy as he surreptitiously snuggled in (man I hope he NEVER stops doing this).

 

My heart overfloweth with thankfulness…..
