Little treasures! That's what I call the "SMALL MOMENTS" of life...the ones that could simply be overlooked if we just blinked or stopped paying attention for a second!
Today, as my little guy was getting himself ready for a nap, he looked over at me and said, "Mommy...I want to hold your hand!" Now, I could have proceeded with my quiet computer time and told him to just go to sleep...
Instead, I stopped what I was doing, grabbed his hand and held it tightly until he was asleep. Why? That precious little moment, I'll never get it back again! In 13 years (we were talking about this walking home from the bus stop today), he'll be driving a car and not want to hold his Mommy's hand anymore. What if I missed this moment in time! I would never forgive myself.
Not only did he benefit...it helped him fall asleep faster...but it absolutely melted my heart! Just in having him ask me to hold his hand...
I know, as a mommy, we can't always stop to smell the roses (so to speak) and it happens, that we overlook a few precious moments every now and again...but may I encourage you to try to enjoy those little moments when you realize they are available for your enjoyment?
TRUST ME...you won't forget those "SMALL MOMENTS" and as small as they may seem...in the grander scheme of things, they are actually a lot bigger than you realize! Ask my filled up heart about that!
Thank you JESUS for making aware of this one today!
