Call it fleeting time, the end of summer days, creeping change...whatever you may, I'm embracing these days, these final moments of summer before schooldays loom. Yes, there are still all the daily struggles, the screaming fights, aggravating, tears and failures, but I find myself still soaking up summer. Making mental notes of little moments, splashing in the pool, lingering over cartoons in the mornings, pushing late bedtimes, lunch dates and cuddled nap times. And yes, even my smelly car that stinks of wet towels left to steam overnight!
It's time for school, some structure and routine is calling all of our names! They are ready, excited, geared up and anticipating. I however, for the first time, I'm holding back a bit. Maybe it's because my Lu starts kindergarten this year, and time seems to be so fast. Life is about to change. I'm gonna miss my little buddy everyday. But this is it right? this life...full of adjustment and change. So I'm embracing it all, the moments, the excitement and tears and this verse... "His mercies are new every morning!" Lam. 3:22
I think for a while I've felt like there were really no marks of change for my seasons, with 3 toddlers it just all seemed so busy, so the same all the time. I'll have to admit I often longed for change...well...it found me. Here we go school age kid. Me and you....we can do this! I know you are gonna thrive sweet Lu....lets pray your mom will too!
