‘Thank you, God, for braids before bedtime. Thank you for messy kitchens and legos on the floor. Thank you for noisy dinner times and late-night conversations, for forts, baby dolls, fingerpaint, and bedtime stories. Thank you for broken wrists and shampoo for brunettes. Thank you for teaching me to number my days. And, God, when I forget, please give me a nudge and number them for me.’
This is such a great post from Hannah Keeley. It’s a wonderful (but teary) look at just how fast time passes that reminds us to cherish the moments we have with our children, messy and all.
