I read that poem last evening and little did I know how the next day would go… It started as any other… I’m busy!!! I’ve got lots to do… things calling my attention from every direction. How can my little boys be so ‘clutzy’?? I need to have the Apple Crisp’s (6 pans) done today!! I have 10lbs of Meat Balls to make… How can my boys think they need my attention?? First one
purposely accidentally dumps his orange juice. Then other sees how much attention he got from Mom, so he purposely accidentally spills his. “I just want Mom to slow down and see that we are here. Not some little kids who need to be ‘ slopped‘ fed , cleaned up, and sent out to play.”
But Mom hurries on her way, wishing they would be more careful. And that they would go play for hours on end, so that she could get her own work done!! Can’t they see she has a headache too?? As her morning progresses, those little boys get naughtier and naughtier… and ALL they need is some one on one time with Mom!!!
I need to nurture those little hearts!! I need to show them love, show them Jesus, even on the full and busy days. I need to show them care and understanding… I need to show them they are the most important thing in my life. I need to be their example, even on the busy days!!!
