Perspective...


Why don't we have perspective when we need it? Like for instance, when my children were babies, instead of just sitting there and soaking in their sweetness 24/7, I was always trying to get the house clean, the dinner made, or whatever. Well, now that my munchkins are all grown and my oldest has one of her own, I get it! Now! Not 25 years ago when I was starting out and really needed to 'get it.' Isn't that just how it is? I sat for hours today just holding my new little granddaughter, Daci; just breathing in her sweet scent, just feeling overwhelmed with the miracle of life, just enjoying watching her breathe while she slept, and just thanking my Heavenly Father for my blessings. Not once did I think about cleaning or cooking or any of the other thousand things I need to get done. It was heaven. Speaking of heaven, one day when I meet my Maker I am going to ask Him one little question: Could we change up the whole perspective thing and give that to us when we really need it, instead of much, much later? I wonder what He'll say.
