Busy as a Bee
Its good to be busy.
Sometimes we can find ourselves so busy we don't take time to reflect on life's amazing moments.
Some I have had in the last few days include gazing into the eyes of my baby and seeing her recognition of me blossom into a smile, Seeing my two year old pucker up her lips and press them to mine in an earnest and innocent kiss, seeing the delight in my 5 year old as she finally gets the hang of the pushbike without the training wheels, and the 7 yr olds womanly walk when she wants to act grown up. Its funny and delightful at the same time.
My wife has been having a tough time with the baby at nights, but she has now had a few nights that she has been able to sleep through without waking, and the relief is palpable. I can't imagine what its like to have someone so dependent on your body for its nourishment like that, and I'm so impressed by her attitude and commitment. She is amazing and I love her. Thanks for being the mother of my kids Judith - you are a fantastic mother.
