Leaving foot prints

in my heart.
I don't want to wash them away because seeing these chalky foot prints on the floor make me smile. 
At moments like these I find myself stepping back to watch my children learn & grow.
 I am yet again reminded of the all joy that they have brought in to my life.
I wish I could stop time.
I want to bottle up the sound of their laughter bouncing around this house, 
so I can up unscrew that lid and hear their joyous laughter come floating out.
Or make a blanket with their happiness sewed into it, 
so on a trying day where I doubt my job and skills as a mother,
 I can wrap myself around that blanket for comfort.   
I want to cherish and remember the little moments that often go unseen.
But most of all I am thankful for the blessings that fill my days!

  1. You've said it exactly, Amber! If only we could capture our delightful kids in something so tangible as bottle filler or quilt threads. Writing it is another way to imprint it in your mind and heart, though, so keep writing!
