Truly who can resist such total innocence and beauty?
As they drip off to sleep and start to actually slow down their breathing, relaxing their grip on the fast based world we live in and just melt into my arms or snuggle in and throw an arm over my neck if we are cuddled up in bed together.
Little Trahaearn is now 2years and 5 months old and we still cuddle up with him.
Well lets be honest here Arwen will be 5 in January and it was her sweet face I cuddled up to tonight and got me thinking about how blessed we are to be able to have this time with the children.
We were laying in bed together, we had said her prayers, had a little chat and rubbed noses together and were listening to Gentle Woman on my I-phone.
I watched her and was so utterly grateful for the sweetness that I am privileged to be a part of each day.
As I was thinking this and cuddling her she threw her arm around my neck drawing herself in closer and just moulded herself into me.
Unconditional and complete love and so I learn from the smallest and most vulnerable in our family.
There are many things that compete for my attention- older children, dinner clean up other household duties or even my own selfish desires for reading that great book I am enjoying or catching up with on line distractions.
Blessings to you and your homes,
