Better Than This

Footsteps down the hallway at three in the morning ...

Little arms wrapped tightly around my neck and a whispered, "I love you" in my ear ...

Helpers in the kitchen ...

Big boys playing at being little ...

Celebrating milestones ...

Always ... always ... cleaning up after little people ...

Gumboots lined up at the back door ...

Time with family...

Food disappearing faster than it can be prepared ...

Stacks of dishes in the sink ...

A little voice chiding me at bedime, "But we have to say our prayers" ...

Cuddles ... and kisses ... and all things sweet ...

















It doesn't get any better than this.

God sets the solitary in families;

God places the lonely in families;

Blessed be the Name of the Lord.

(Loosely paraphrased from Psalm 68:6, NLT, NKJV.)
