Cleaning around the house
Adding things to my pockets as I find them in the floor
Today, once again, I realized it won't always be so
In just five minutes my pockets were full
Colorful magnets I use with Caedmon, 3, for his "schoolwork"
A green army man
Two glass marbles
Empty nebulizer medicine tubes
A colored pencil
All reflections of our days
Days that I am fully aware are constantly bringing change
Yes, there are still little boys here and will be for a few more years, but I can easily see those two little boys....just by glancing over at their older brothers....same age difference just a dozen years older
Asthma meds have been a huge part of our daily lives since....well, since I was a kid....but for my kids? The past 24 years or so. Thankful I am that there are empty nebulizer medicine tubes that I must pick up from the floor.
Jackson, 7 year old man child, has discovered money to be very interesting....counting, sorting, just looking at it
A colored pencil that could have been used by a number of the children...older and younger loves to draw, paint, create....
Bobby pins....a reminder that there are still a couple of young ladies living here...in the midst of all this manliness
It's easier to see the changes, I think, as my children are so spread out in ages. This year the children will be 28 (how can that be!!), 24, 20, 16, 13, 8 and 4....and we now have grandchildren!
Life is full of changes, seasons, scrapbook pages turning before our very eyes.....
Slow down and see the changes...
