Little drops of water, little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean and the pleasant land.
So the little moments, humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages of Eternity.
Little deeds of kindness, little words of love,
Help to make earth happy, like the heaven above.

Happy Monday Mama!!  Doesn’t this poem just hit you right between the eyes today?  Well, I know that it does me.  It makes me remember that life is not all about the big moments, the picture perfect holidays, or checking all the boxes so we can have finish our school week the way we planned.  What it really all comes down to are those little moments in time that we get with our children.  All of those little deeds that we do everyday to teach + train them will add up in a big way at the end of their childhood.  I want to encourage you (and myself) to make the most out of all the little pockets of time.  Our children are watching us each second of the day – all 86,400 of them. 

Be present with them.  Redeem the time with them.  Every second is a gift from God.
