Storing up My Teasures

These are my mommy treasures as of late.

-Seeing her sweet spirit develop as she grows into her great big heart.
-Watching her kiss her babies and tuck them in so gently.
-Seeing her love for music grow stronger as she learns songs, hums in the car and rocks out when Daddy plays guitar. (He says they have a "musical connection".)
-Hearing her say "please", "bless you" and "thank you" as she learns to mind her manners.
-Seeing how she captivates an audience so easily.
-Hearing her "read" a book to me.
-Watching the excitement on her face as she sees familiar things she loves. (Like a cookie!)
-Seeing her fight for attention, especially when Daddy kisses or hugs Mommy instead of her. :)
-Watching her be independent and hearing her tell me exactly what she wants with her different noises and pointing fingers only a mommy can understand.
-Watching her enjoy the simple things in life like flowers, bright colors and lights, rolly pollys, dancing and animals of all kinds.
-Allowing her to remind my adult heart that the simple things are worth enjoying in my fast paced world.
-Seeing her play pretend in Mommy's shoes, makeup and jewelry.
-Seeing her grow and learn each day that I am blessed enough to be called her Mommy.

"...But His mother treasured all these things in her heart." Luke 2:51
