Raise your hand if you enjoy peeking on your kids while they are sleeping. Aaron and I (okay, it was his idea first-I was too worried we’d wake them up and then they couldn’t go back to sleep!) started this a few years ago and it’s so sweet, isn’t it? To see these precious little ones that God has trusted us crazy, irresponsible and often distracted parents with. I love it.
I want to love my kids during the day the way that I love them when I watch them sleeping or when I haven’t seen them in a day or two.
I know, it’s different when they are sleeping and is completely understandable that we can muster up more mushy gushy love for them while they are quietly laying there and not talking back, whining and disobeying. I’m going to try and see my kids through those love stained, rose-colored glasses today; to remember their sweet countenance and peaceful spirit-even if that’s not what they are portraying as their foremost character quality at the time.
Here’s to a day filled with love for our kids!
