Through the eyes of a child.

Looking at life through the eyes of a child. Seems so simple, so inviting, so liberating.

I’ve been a bit stressed out lately.  Feeling overwhelmed at everything expected of me right now.  Jobs have come/gone in the past year, hubby is back in school, kids are growing like weeds, housework, housework & more housework, working out plus the bible study which I so desperately need to do for me right now and so on, and on, and on…..

It’s been a little crazy around my house. I was feeling down and out the other night questioning whether we were doing the right thing in certain areas of our lives (school, jobs, house). Mostly I was concerned how it was affecting the kids. Are they happy? Do they feel the stress we feel?  Am I being a good mom despite all that’s going on?

God answers prayers. He answers us even when we aren’t really questioning Him.  He knows our innermost fears.  I’ve had these questions floating around in my head for the past few weeks keeping me up at night. I couldn’t help but wonder how on earth I’m supposed to balance everything I have on my plate.  I was convinced I either needed a bigger plate or needed to get rid of something on it.

I found this picture drawn just before the kids went to bed the other night. It was a blessing to my eyes!  The big one is almost 6 now and is becoming an awesome artist.  He definitely gets his artistic ability from his daddy!   He drew this picture of our family.  Look at us! We are smiling, happy, filled with joy (even our cat is happy).

It really helped me slow down to try to see things the way he sees things. He sees the smiles, the good times, the fun of our life.  It gives me the energy to continue on and trust that what we are doing is right. I need to remember to ‘see’ and focus on the good rather than focus on the tough.

So here we are!  Hubby (yes he does have hair, not sure why there isn’t any in the picture), me with my one long hair : ), the little one with his curly hair and the big one with his wild straight hair.  I will treasure this photo. It’s going right in his special box.  This is how he sees our family.  He doesn’t see the stress, the panic or the fear.  He’s comfortable in his world. I am going to start viewing life as he does.  I will run with this and see my world through the eyes of a child.
