Sweet Reminders

OK, this is just one example of how quickly my mood can change...

After posting, only moments ago, my "feeling - very - sorry- for - myself" post, I went to tuck my children into bed. My sweet husband had already done the bulk of the work so I got the easy job of singing to B while rocking her -- a tradition that neither of us ever like to miss.

The last two days I have been singing her a new song she refers to as the "bird song." Some of you may know it better as "My Heavenly Father Loves Me." It's one of the songs our children sing in our church. Just as I finishthe song, she says "again, again" So we sing it again -- and again. She sings right along with me, trying her best to say all the words. Tonight, as I got to the last line of the second verse, "Yes, I know my Heavenly Father loves me," She sang the words out clear and, even though I have never done any actions with her, clasped her hands over her heart and tilted her head to the side with a grin that seemed to say, "remember, mom?"

Yeah, I remember. Heavenly Father does love me. And He sent me such sweet angels like B and each one of my boys to remind me of that. So even when the world doesn't stop. There are these little moments that get me through and remind me that everything is OK. The little sounds coming from my two year old as she tries to belt out a song about how Heavenly Father loves her are definitely what I consider "the magical sound of things."

So yes, today was long. I am looking forward to a break. But I am so grateful for the sweet reminders Heavenly Father gives me that He is watching over me.

Awww, thanks for that! I love the things that come out of their mouths that are so sweet and so profound.

That is so sweet! Sometimes it takes a child to put things into perspective. Your little Becca is an angel!
