sun sets, barely shining through the blinds.
he sits tucked on my lap. tired. rubbing his eyes as we rock.
baby skin soft and sweet smelling.
he watches as she dances and twirls in the doorway.
her nightly performance of tricks and treats.
dancing. then hopping on one foot. she's so proud.
then a prayer. so sweet.
god, thank you for my baby brother.
that i get to play with him.
help him dream about lovely things.
in jesus name, amen.
a few more snuggles and giggles.
his head falls into that nook between my neck and shoulder.
i love that spot.
i squeeze tight then lay him down.
these are the days.
these are the moments in time i never want to forget.
i am storing them in my heart.
what moments are you treasuring right now?
