I know I just posted about how much my kids have grown
but just look at this please.
The one on the left is 2007 (a couple months after we moved out here)
and the one on the right is this year.
It just confirms what has been hitting me lately...
that I need to be grateful each day for the time I have with my kids because they will be grown and gone before I know it!
"I try not to let the good things go by unnoticed."
-from Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry
Lord, help me to notice and remember the good things
and not focus on the little, fleeting frustrations.
