Someday ....

i will miss.......
toothpaste smeared on the mirror,
my stained carpet,
hugs from lil' boys,
grading  schoolwork,
changing diapers,
making smoothies,
washing clothes,
putting sunscreen on,
tucking in,
reading books,
decorated refrigerator,
being interrupted,
washing sippy cups,
discarding ruined socks,
being the referee,
playing blocks,
shopping with 2 carts,
listening to Barney,
scrubbing off tattoos,
doubling or tripling recipes
stepping on legos,
giving baths...... 

it has crossed my mind that someday I might be lonely and  living by myself.  so for this day forward, i will treasure each day with my children as a gift from the Lord.

i truly am blessed..

Ecclesiastes 3:1

  To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven


  1. Great food for thought. As my guys get older (now 12 & 13) I am already grieving the end of homeschooling in 6 years...let alone dating, marriage, or *gasp* college. I totally agree with your sentiment. I will miss the happy business of our day-to-day lives.

  2. This is very special...thank you!

  3. What a great poem, I am blessed with five daughters who are changing into little women each day. I am truely grateful for the time we have at home, wouldn't change it for the world!


My prayer is that you have been blessed in some way by my words. Thanks for leaving me a comment!
