Today was a better day. A good day. A day that I will think back on with smiles.
The boy who spilled paprika all over my carpet cleaned out his entire closet by himself complete with vacuuming. He organized the mountain of toys, finished obsessively and was insanely proud of his accomplishment. I was pretty darn proud myself.
So proud we celebrated and went for ice cream when we picked up the big kids from school.
Then we had an evening school performance. That same boy sat in his chair, clapped his hands and tapped his feet with the music for the whole performance. He was as proud as I was to be a part of this big, energetic, slightly crazy family.
It was a good day.
Here are their angelic, sweet, happy smiles. I hope they make you smile too.
Sons are a heritage from the LORD,
children a reward from him. Psalm 127:3
God's loyal love couldn't have run out,
his merciful love couldn't have dried up.
They're created new every morning.
How great your faithfulness!
I'm sticking with God (I say it over and over).
He's all I've got left. Lamentations 3:22-24
