it was this kind of day...

got up early, 
quick breakfast, 
off to a MOMS club meeting, 
lunch time fun with friends, 
missed our nap {too much fun with friends} 
picked Auntie up from work, 
made appointments, 
talked with Doctors, 
made a zillion phone calls, 
got Kara off the kitchen counter tops one hundred times, 
answered one more phone call, 
pulled a small toy out of Rachel's ear 
{she thought it belonged there, apparently
*while helping Rachel with the toy in her ear....*
.... Kara found a new tub of lotion 
{one I thought I put high enough out of her reach
cleaned up the mess, 
bathed Kara, 
greeted Daddy at the door soon after, 
we all got ready for Bible study, 
went to Bible study, 
ate a yummy dinner, 
visited with people we love, 
felt very blessed......... 

somehow, even after days like today; messes that were part of today and craziness that seems too much to fit into one day, at the end of it all, I can't help but smile and tell myself... it could be worse. 
"I wonder if this is what it looks like to God, when we make a total mess of things."
-Ethan, upon seeing his sister in the bathroom, covered head to toe in lotion.

I love what Ethan said!
I think my boy will say clever things like that once he can talk. :) Your Ethan always makes me smile.

Stef said...

me too, Melissa :)
Ethan has a very tender heart and is an extremely deep thinker. Always has lots of questions and deeper questions that follow the questions :-)

Emily said...

All I can do is just laugh at Kara! So funny!

Gina said...

Love Ethan's comment! I swear, if he doesn't do great things for God I will be very surprised! And what a great picture of Kara--she looks so proud of herself. :-)

Well, Ethan is sure a deep thinker! I love that picture. I have walked into, or had her walk out to show me, that same seen. Good times.

Out of the mouths of Babes. They see quite clearly.

I put it as my wallpaper and it makes me smile everyday :)
