Give your smile...

Take a gander at these faces with me…andrewcropped2
Pretty beautiful …right?
and handsome even when so incredibly sad…
(the adorable Monster Hat was made by one of my amazing sisters who has been working her crochet hooks like a pro!)
These faces were filled with more tears today than smiles…
literally non-stop…
except for our short trip to the thrift store.
Neither one of them could express the reasons for all the sadness and it broke my heart. I’ve been feeling frustrated all day because I can’t seem to make it better and I don’t know what to do.
There is no owie to kiss, no dirt to brush off.
Maybe they just need some sleep, maybe they need their Dad.
Whatever it is, I’ve come to the conclusion that I can’t fix it.
Not today and well,
I hate that.

What I do know is…I’m glad I have the privilege of calling them mine. Even on hard days like today.

But if you look past the hard things you can see that days like today are days where all the big and less important things disappear and all that’s left is what is most important…tears of someone you love.

No workout routine, no meeting, lesson plan or busy schedule can replace my job today. So my 1st “little thing” for today is this…

forced-smilethe chance I have to give my beautiful miracle boys my love and my smile.

My 2nd “little thing” so far today was the sight of this smiling face beaming a friendly welcome as I opened the pantry door.
