These are Some Good Times!

All my boys, sticking together to work and play together.
I love these moments! "You're gonna miss this! You're gonna want this back. You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast. These are some good times; so take a good look around. You may not know it now, but you're gonna miss this!"...but what if I do? I know I'm going to miss this...I so keenly feel it, I will want this back, the little fingers covered in sticky mess, smiling at me, the little giggles and helpless cries, helping with Algebra, watching the boys play football games with each other in the yard, watching them suck up life as fast as they can. These are some amazingly emotionally charged, carefree times (all my children sleep through the night, they all dress themselves, go potty alone, feed themselves, and want me around but don't ultra need me like little babies -whew!, I take long looks around, trying to inhale all the sights and sounds and smells and feelings of this time(it's just perfect), but everyone keeps growing and changing...What a Heavenly gift I have been given! LIFE! I am in love, I am loved, I am feeling overwhelmed with God's charity...a wonderfully free gift...simple...yet just perfect!
