Sweet Moments

…when the baby fusses, and Fritz or Katie rush over to try to comfort her…

…when Jenny cries that the chocolate for that day in her Advent calendar is missing and Billy immediately bites his in half and shares…

…when I wonder why Peter is taking so long to get into the pew at church and I look down to see him doing his best to imitate my genuflection…

…when Katie joyfully offers to fold the basket of baby clothes…

…when my husband asks, “What can I do to help?”

…when Jenny spends an hour with paper and markers, crumpling no less than five sheets in frustration, nearly having a meltdown, and complaining that the loud Christmas music is messing her up, only in the end to run to me with shining eyes to say, “Mommy, this is for you!”
…when the baby interrupts story time with a sneeze and the whole crowd responds with a lilting “bless you” as if she just performed the cutest trick…

…when Fritz tells me it’s too bad that the baby didn’t take a good nap because I sure would have enjoyed sledding with him…

…when Peter asks his daddy if he’ll play trains and Bill gets up right away to do it…and then an hour later I find all four males of the house in a bedroom blasting Christmas rock music and trying to build Lego trains…
…this is why I do what I do.
