Five Minute Friday Grow

It is such a blessing to watch my children grow. I have the opportunity to watch them grow and change daily. The things that they say and do bring me so much laughter, joy, and proud mom moments. I love that my oldest daughter loves to ask questions, and a lot of times, she says the first thing that comes to mind, which leads to a lot of funny and witty responses. She really gets me laughing and keeps me on my toes. I love that my son is my hugger. He loves giving Mama hugs. He is also very helpful, and encourages his sisters to help me as well. He is an imaginative story teller, and very creative with naming his toys or mega block creations. My little Cuddle Bug loves to sing. Some of the songs she makes up and sings to herself. * Other times she will sing nursery rhymes or other children’s songs. She also will sit and color in a coloring book all day if you let her. It is such a privilege to watch them grow. They remind me to bloom where I am planted and seek opportunities to grow as a child of God, a wife, and a mother right along with them.

This post is a part of the weekly Five Minute Friday link-up. My friends and I gather over at Kate’s blog Heading Home to write for five minutes on the topic of the wee

      Yes, the old adage, the days are long, but the years are short is so true. I love seeing their growth and watching them develop their own unique interests and talents. Thank you for stopping by friend!

    I had similar sentiments today. I’m realizing how fast my kids are growing up. Thank you for the important reminder to enjoy their wonderful, unique qualities.

      Yes, I need to remind myself of this often. I get far too caught up in trying to keep up with everything in life and I forget. I hope you have a great day!

    Lovely reading your post today. We are so very blessed, aren’t we? I don’t stop often enough to reflect on that. On Mother’s Day our church had a single woman speak and her words made me appreciate so much more what a gift we’ve been given and how easy it is to take it for granted. She also shared about several friends of hers who’ve been unable to have children.

    Interesting reading about your children’s personalities too. Our oldest and youngest sound so similar to yours.

    It is a blessing to watch our children grow and to spend time contemplating the wonderful and unique qualities each one brings to our life. Humor, children bring a lot of humor.
    I was cuddling with my youngest this evening. Both of us laughing and being silly together fed my heart and soul like no other thing can.
    Thank you for sharing a little of the joys you find in your children.
