Delighting in the little things

In case I haven't explained the name of my blog, or atleast haven't in a while, it's a my take on Eccl. 3 that says, "for everything there is a season..." And here I am with 2 kids under the age of 3 (one month ago I could say 2 under the age of 2 *sigh*) and it's really easy for me to complain about how "hard" life is, or testing/trying, or whatever you want to call it. But then God reminds me that there IS a purpose for me in this life, even if it's to raise my children to love and honor Him.

Well one such time was a few days ago. It was around 2:30 in the afternoon, and I was still hearing rumblings in Caroline's room signaling that she was NOT napping. No biggie, but I wanted to check on her anyway. When I walked in, this is what I saw...






okay, so I posed her a little, but still...I walked in to see her playing with all her Princess shoes fanned out in some order, playing the "drums" on them! She was happy as could be, and that just made my heart smile! I can't remember a day in my life that I ever played with such plastic high heeled shoes, but I love that my little girl does! I love that God made her a unique person with a very fun personality, perfect in His creation.

Random, I know. But I just wanted to share. Delighting in the little things. Enjoying the moment.
