Have you ever been looking at your children and just get this little catch in your throat? Almost like a hiccup but you know that if it went unrestrained you could be shedding tears of happiness.
That little catch usually takes me by surprise.
::It happens when I pick up Squeak and look down at his precious face. He's so new and so sweet and fresh from heaven. Oh, the things he could teach me!
::It's in listening to Sweet Girl making up songs and sing to everyone and no one.
::It's in catching a glimpse of Sweetie Heart out of the corner of my eye, and for the briefest of seconds seeing her as a teenager, growing faster than I can imagine.
::It's in watching my kids step out of the bathtub and noticing how long their legs and how big their feet are.
::It's in the smell of sleep in my girls room and the sleepy, "I love you" in my ear.
::It's in the hugs and kisses that are freely given at any time.
This mom thing is hard. Sometimes I don't know how I'm going to get through the end of the day. But I am given the little catches to remind me how very blessed I am!
