Sometimes you just have to stop in the middle of it all.
Put down the iPhone or iPad.
Turn off the TV.
Turn off Pandora.
Put down the to-do list.
And shut down the 500 things running around in your brain.
And look at what God has given you.
They are so little.
They are so tender.
This time is so precious.
And it can be taken for granted.
Take time to listen to his sweet voice. He won’t always sound that way.
Take time to rub your face against her soft skin. Her skin won’t always be so smooth.
Look at their little hands and feet. One day they won’t be little.
Think about the stuffed animal they like to sleep with. One day they will be embarrassed by it.
Savor your baby.
Savor your son.
Savor your daughter.
This time is SO tender.
