The Joy of Discovery

I have always had a heart for children.  I love everything about them.  Their innocence, their giggles, their energy, their unconditional love, their zest for life, their honesty and their sincerity.  It delights me to watch them play and discover new things.  My own son, Alex will turn 21 this week.  Truely where did the time go? As he grew we planned on adding to our family but  as time passed we were just not blessed with any other children of our own.  At first I did question this but then I began to see how God would bless me in a different way.  He would bring children into my life in so many other ways.  First with my sweet girls Kate and Emma--who have now grown into beautiful young ladies. 
After my babysitting time with the girls came to an end, God brought Drew, my new "week day" buddy into my life.  Then He blessed our family again with my new neice, Emily.  This week I was delighted to have both Drew and Emily to spend time with. What a joy to watch them play together... 
      

and discover new things......





 This morning Drew was practicing his cutting skills.....
 He was so pleased and excited to have learned this new skill.


Each new day brings new discovery----and it is such a JOY to watch.

It seems like last month your son was graduating from high school. Time is flying by! There are all kinds of ways that women 'mother'. What a blessing to have you to watch over these children. Mimi
