Dom working on puzzlesI sit here at the kitchen table surrounded by gerber puffs and puzzle pieces and luke warm coffee.

I ask for five minutes and,on this rare occasion, my children generously give it.

The playroom is splashes of purple violet dogs and red fire trucks. Yellow duplo blocks and pink baby dolls. A black and red rocking horse sits in the corner.

My children have colored my world in a way that I both hoped for and never expected.

Because of them, the “sun is awake” in more brilliant hues of yellow than I ever thought imaginable. eating

I am thankful for this blank canvas of Motherhood that God has given me.  It is quite a masterpiece in the making.
