If you are just joining this series for the first time, you can read the heart about it here.
There are moments that happen through the day that are just normal. They are my everyday.
For example, it is not unusual for my little girl to be dressed up as a princess and either be wrestling with her brothers or crafting at the same time. Although this is a normal moment, it’s one that I never want to forget.
Someday I will look back at these sweet moments in time and smile through teary eyes at how special, precious, and quick they were. So, I stop cleaning up dinner dishes to just watch her and capture this picture.
This sweet babe of mine is my baby girl. Three weeks ago her world was rocked as we welcomed another little boy into our lives for a season.
He is our first foster placement since moving to Indiana. I look at my sweet girl and realize she is no longer the baby in the house. She is no longer the only four-year old in the house. My heart hurts a little bit for how I have changed up her world, but then I have to believe I am showing her a much bigger world. Telling her to love others is much different than the power of showing her.
We are navigating to find a new normal around here, and I could not be prouder for how my kids are loving this sweet new one in our home. As my schedule has changed, and I don’t have as much time to do other things besides kids, I am reminded of how I can still be creative in other ways from crafts. Finding special moments with just one on one interaction with my kids is one way I am having to be creative.
It’s funny how when we are searching and looking…we can find them and Jesus has been so good to grant them to me daily. Watching Snow White craft away a coloring picture to cut out, glue to cardboard, and use as a toy was just one moment in the last week that I never want to forget.
