Tea for three...

It is a tie score in our home. We have been blessed with four children, two girls and two boys. With children in and out and all about, it is difficult to get time alone with them individually. We really try to spend most of our time together as a family. With our oldest only home for two more years before college, it is time that we truly guard and try to keep to enjoy together. We know this time is precious. This weekend was a rare occasion for all of us. My husband took the boys on a father/son camping trip with our church while all of us girls got to have a couple days to ourselves. It was so much fun. We enjoyed so many girl-things. This of course included watching chick flicks. My teenage daughter and I watched, ‘Win a date with Tad Hamilton’ today, while my 8yr old and I watched ‘Finding Nemo’ for our special time together on Friday night. We even decided to have ice cream for dinner on Friday. And of course there was LOTS of chocolate. Today all three of us got dressed up and went out to tea. Grace even brought her favorite doll along…‘Shauna’. (She is the one sitting by the teapot in the picture.) This doll is special to me too, as it was the doll that my mother gave Gracie on her 1st birthday. I couldn’t help but feel almost overwhelmed with gratitude and joy sitting at a table with my two beautiful daughters this afternoon. “Thank you God.” has been my continual prayer these days. I have so much to be thankful for. I have said before that I take my job seriously as a mom and I really do. I have the attention span of a gnat and can be distracted so easily. So this post will be a short one…I am off to curl up next to my daughter who has fallen asleep in my bed. Her baby doll Shauna is on her chest. These moments fly by and I don’t want to miss a one of them.
