In the last minutes of Coffee Hour, November 9, 2021, there were two people left on the porch. Small children were climbing us like trees, spilling coffee supplies all over the floor and crying for a drink.
It was mentioned about living in the moment. It’s hard when all you want is for the children to go to bed and you swear that some days are 36 hours long.
It made me think.
While I am kid sitting for an hour, trying to get dinner in the crockpot and serving lunch to two little men, it’s like chaos in the center of chaos.
I want to remember these times are precious and not an obstacle. Little kids…..are little kids I want my mindset to be way past the mess of it all
I want to remember and be grateful for two little men, ages 2 and 4. How they want to spend time with me. How we made lunch together and watched a little TV while mommy ran a few errands. I want to remember that Jack likes cold sandwiches while Luke likes nothing. Absolutely nothing.
I want to remember that we eat 3 or more meals a day and we have dishes to wash. I want to remember that a young husband loves his young wife and brings her flowers regularly and we all get to enjoy them . I want to see that a young mother does her best to offer fresh fruits and vegetables.
I want to be grateful that we have food to share. Another young family has sick kids and I’m so grateful to be able to make them dinner during hard nights. I’m so blessed to be able to stay home and have the time to do extra acts of kindness
I’m so glad my daughter has friends to share time with who are in the same season of life. They share the Love of God and small-ish children. It was a birthday yesterday and they shared the day together with the treat of homemade cupcakes. The pantry door is ALWAYS open and it even has a lock. I’m so happy for food. Abundance
And last but not least as we circle the kitchen and it’s current state of disaster……..
The coffee pot and carafe
Its no secret how I feel about my CH ladies and all they bring to my life.
Maybe if you are having a rough day, month or year……look for the good.
I know sometimes it’s really really hard.
Now, I clean the kitchen!
