A Sweet Little Sight


“The joy of motherhood comes in moments. There will be hard times and frustrating times. But amid the challenges there are shining moments of joy and satisfaction.” -Elder M. Russell Ballard

With the baby finally going down to sleep and a little toddler who fights a nap everyday but actually gave in early today, I slumped against my kitchen cabinet with a little sigh of relief.

Fingers rubbing my forehead vigorously, trying to workout a headache that I could feel crowding in.

When I looked up, this is what I saw, my oldest sitting there eating lunch.

His cape clad back turned towards me and his dog standing close, waiting for a drop of food and a pat on the head.

Today I looked up and saw the light in my life that always shines the brightest right when I need it to. While my other little blessings were cozy in their beds leaving me just a little deflated I looked up and saw a sweet sight.

Oh how thankful I am for the sweet little sights all around me and even more grateful when I actually open my eyes enough to notice them.
