Pocket Reflections

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

An inhaler

A quarter

A colored pencil

Bobbie pins

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...

Newest Blessing





Carolina Belle was born Friday evening, February 3.  She is a big girl, weighing just over 10 pounds and is 21 inches long.  Our daughter, Lauren, is doing well.  Just dealing with those severe afterbirth pains that moms of many get.  I got to sit and hold her for a good while on Saturday and we'll head back down in the morning with a Yukon XL full of supplies from Sam's and ready to settle in for another long baby fix.  So sweet to hold a newborn baby and listen to their little grunts and moans.  Blessed sweetness!
