I know my kids - I can recognize whose footprints are walking while I'm downstairs in the basement, I know the faces that mean "I'm hungry," I know which cry means for me to come running, I know the squeeze of my hand means "I'm nervous," and on and on. I spend all my time with them and I am grateful that I know them so well they have become a part of me.
As I checked on them before I went to bed last night, they took my breath away - literally. I'm not a sappy person and I don't say that lightly. When did they get so big? Why does the time have to go so quickly? Am I wishing it away or taking advantage of it? Do they know how incredible they are? Do they know how much of a better person I am because of them?
