endearing

 
I have had so many endearing moments this week just staring at our kids. 
 

 
Some days are so incredibly overwhelming that I have a hard time seeing straight.  So it is good for me to just sit and stare and soak up the gifts I've been given. 
 
But this season I'm in will look a bit different in a few months time, and drastically different next year at this time.  I don't want to rush it,  I truly love my children's ages and stages and I want to embrace it and hold onto the grace God is holding out to me each step of the way. 
 
 
 

 

GRACE, n. [L. gratia, which is formed on the Celtic; Eng. agree, congruous, and ready. The primary sense of gratus, is free, ready, quick, willing, prompt, from advancing.]

Or each, or all, may win a lady's grace.
