I stumble across the floor and stub my toe on the stray matchbox car. I gather up little socks left as “gifts” for me. I clean over and over again the toilet seats that are “blessed” with remnants of little boy’s missed targets. I sweep, I vacuum and I clean up the ever growing dirt on the floor.
Why can’t they remember to put away their shoes?
Do they think I am a maid around here?
How many times do I have to tell them to pick up their toys?
When will they ever get it?
As the days go by and I am busy doing the mundane and unnoticed things in life, I am stopped in my tracks….
I see the days, the moments and the years passing by.
Wasn’t it just yesterday when I was rocking my babies? It’s a blur now as I recall the sleep deprivation of infant twins learning to sleep through the night.
Oh time is whizzing by like a fast moving train, and I must hang on. I must find joy in the ordinary things and the less-than-glamorous.
One day I will miss the crunchy legos finding their way under my feet, and the smudges at the window and the mud at the door.
Oh Lord help me to love it all. To see the pleasure in the mundane, to bless my family as I clean up mud and matchbox cars.
These days will be gone in a blink of an eye.
