For the daily shows of "Max and Ruby" that came on, just when some needed peace and quiet was necessary...


For a captive audience during a fun performance...


For the older sister who helped with the entertaining of the smallest ones...




For the old, well made toys that now brought joy to the next generation of little ones...





For the moments of hugs and kisses between siblings...rare moments, but moments none the less...





For the bedtime stories and the grandpa who read them...




For sisters who sometimes dressed the same, sometimes showered each other affection, and sometimes helped for each other...

These were a few of my rich blessings this past weekend. They became more real to me in light of the news broadcasts of the Chilean earthquake and the devastation involved...the lives lost...and the uncertainities that resulted from this major catastrophy.
May I be made aware today, and as I face this week, that truly...
..."simple pleasures are priceless treasures."

Thank you Lord for equipping me with what I need to mother this crew You gave to me, and for two of those "tool's" who not only taught me how to parent, but are amazing sources of love and security to my own children. These are gifts i do NOT take for granted.

Amen.

What could possibly intrude on such precious moments? Don't they just take your breath away? Couldn't you just scoop them up and squeeze the daylights out of them, and lovin' into them?

Now I'm missing my babes (though they barely fit on my lap anymore). Thank God we've got a bonus baby coming in June.

Thank you for captivating us (again) with your photographic eye and creative word-smithing.

Blessings,
Kathleen
