    Rebekah, I wrote this for moms like you who are in the trenches with little ones. I wish someone had come along beside me during those busy, tiring days, and just encouraged me. I needed to hear that it was okay not to do “everything”, but to pick and choose what really mattered, and live by priorities. -Kathie

    Jelli, I know the feeling of being drained by 7! Those days are hard and seem long, yet it all goes so fast, doesn’t it?! Take time when you can to just breathe it in, and enjoy it. 🙂 -Kathie

    Thank you for this. I’m in the small children stage of motherhood and I love every day of it, but sometimes I am drained by 7pm and just plain ready for bed. I can see already how fast the days fly by and I long to be able to draw them out even longer sometimes just to smell my baby’s head or watch my toddler do silly dances. Motherhood is such a joy, and the sounds of small kiddos doesn’t stay around long enough.

    Thank you so much for this reminder! I needed to hear this after a long day I the trenches with 5 little ones!:) I really do love this time and I do realize that it is going to be over sooner then I would like but some days are harder then others and those are the days I do need to slow down and remember to be intentional.

    Oh, how true it is! While I am just now graduating my *first* (and my youngest is still a baby!), I can already feel the weight of this truth. It goes by too quickly. Thank you for the sweet words today!

    Janet, thanks for stopping in, and for the early congrats. 🙂 Hope you have a good week too! -Kathie

    How true! My daughter will probably always live with me – she has Down Syndrome – but sometimes I wish I could recapture some of her younger years and days. I have lots of pictures, but I wasn’t always writing down what she said and when and why – and I’ve learned that she has a wealth of wisdom to teach. Congratulations on the impending (I know, a year is still a ways…) graduation of your son! You have many years of family memories to build – and I can tell you will savor them! Wishing you a wonderful week – your neighbor at Monday’s Musings – Janet
