My Little Happy Family
Tonight my husband took my oldest daughter to the store with him and so for about an hour it was just me and my baby girl. For a while she sat and played with her new baby doll and I cleaned up dinner. I began to notice how quiet it was. My first thought was...wow...that's nice. As I listened further I noticed that there was no sound of fighting, or laughing; or crying. Maya played quietly and I cleaned. After a little bit I noticed that Maya began to aimlessly walk around. She never said a word; but I think she was looking for her playmate. I thought about how that I was so thankful that her and Sophia had each other. Then I thought back to a time when they weren't a part of my life yet. What did I do? I thought how lonely and boring my life had been. When Phillip was at work I was alone. I had no one to talk to, no one to hug. All of the sudden I had a glimpse of what my life would be like without the other half of my family. Lonely. Yes it may be quieter; but I wouldn't trade the laughing, crying, noise that goes on everyday for anything. It may sometimes be chaotic; but my life is full of joy. I may never get all the laundry done at one time...I may always have that one lonely dish that failed to make it in the dishwasher; but I am happy. I wouldn't trade any of that for all the quiet you could offer. I love my little happy family. Thank you Lord...for your blessings on me.
