It seems as though every time I turn around lately, I hear about something else that just breaks my heart. I know that it may seem, at times, that there's so much to be done (dirty clothes to be washed, crunched-up Cheerios all over the floor, and maybe a playroom that looks like a toy store throws up in it every day). Take heart, though, because those things don't really matter in the long run because they'll always be there (wink, wink).
Your family and your children, however, are what really matters. So even though you'd like to yell out for the fiftieth time for your little darlings to pick up their things, be happy that your little darlings are there, even though they are making a mess. Grab them up and love them. Say it out loud, "I love you." It's good to say, and it's even better to hear.
Give love and be thankful to have such a beautiful mess!
