A Rarity

Just moments before I snapped this I was having one of those moments where both kids were screaming. Paisley was beyond tired and Wyn was screaming that she didn’t want to go down for a “nappy” over and over and over… and on top my house is upside down… not to mention we are having company over shortly and I sure have not started a thing in regards to food… and the laundry piles.. oh me… and your mind drifts to all those other items on your never ending to do list of things you really want done but you just can’t get to…

I’m sure many of you know this feeling… And then...all of a sudden all goes quiet.  All is calm which is a true rarity in our house. That little head resting on your arm gets awfully heavy and their breathing gets heavier. And you whisper, oh praise Jesus!

And the feeling that follows is completely blissful, almost indescribable. There are few things greater in this world than this. holding your sleeping babies. their smell. their deep breaths. the way they curl into you and cling to you even in their sleep. the complete trust they have in you.

And you battle the ideas of whether you should stay there and just hold those sweet babies or whether to carefully move them to their beds so you can to the frantic, mad-dash scramble to get your house in some resemblance of order…

Few things in life are better than this moment right here.


  1. awww, that is so sweet! And yes, quiet moments are quite blissful! I miss having little youngest is 4, but he is still very cuddly :) Actually, my 11 year old climbs in my lap whenever she can & she is almost as tall as I am! Thanks for visiting & the follow!

  2. Well written! Been there many times. So chaotic but very precious! Tash
