The Years Are Short

Even though times may be hard right now, with having four children in four years, I need to remind myself that this time will go by quickly. Soon my kids will all be graduated and be living on their own. Soon you say? Yes, soon. Even though my youngest is 2 years old and my oldest is 6 and in 1st grade, I know it need to remember that it will quickly pass. Soon, it will all be memories. It makes me sad to think that my children are growing up and won't be so little for long. This video reminds me of that.
Dear Lord, please help me to remember that my children will only be little for a short time. Help me to cherish these moments. Help me to make it through the frustrations, the tears, and come what may. Help me to be the best mom I can be. I love my kids and I thank you for entrusting them to me. Thank you Lord for my four little blessings!


  1. Just know that your kids love you and you are doing a great job with them. Hang in there. Love you, my friend!

  2. That made me cry. My oldest two will be moving on to middle school in the fall. The closer it gets the more emotional I get. The last day of school is going to be very hard for me. I'm definitely cherishing every minute with the baby.
