Sunny Days

What a perfect day! "Clear blue and 22" .... an aviation term that my dear husband (a pilot) loves to use to describe one of those perfect days..... The kiddos and I spent the morning at the park.... on the playground, in the swings, walking in the stroller (baby girl slept most of the time) and then on to the nature trail where we discussed all the whys and wherefores of magnolias, oaks and mimosa trees...and of course now have a beautiful magnolia blossom adding its' sweet scent to our kitchen...
Little boys just amaze me sometimes with their innate "roughness"... (wanting to demolish things, leap off the backs of couches and beat poor flowers to death with plastic swords).... but they also amaze in how quickly they can change from the roaring lion ("look mama, I Simba") to the sweetest angel, planting sticky dirty kisses all over me, and with "Mama do you love me bigger than the sky?" and " Mama I you fweet boy", and with "Mama you so beyoo-full".... such is the nature of the 2 1/2 year old. Wanting to be a "big boy", but still so much my baby. Such sweet days. Nothing terrible about the "2s"... just days of sticky kisses, fat hands, silly smiles, big blue eyes, thousands of questions, with a few measures of stubbornness and independence sprinkled in... and a precious little boy that we are training up to be a Godly man...... I wouldn't have it any other way.

"Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him" Psalm 127:3
"And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them" Matthew 10:16
Blessings to you and yours today... go outside, soak up some sunshine and enjoy the beauty of God's creation ....
Much love, Jennifer
