The other evening my daughter asked if I’d read her a story while she was in the tub.  I told her I needed to clean up the kitchen from dinner and said we’d read later.  A few moments later, I walked by the bathroom to see this
 It broke my heart.  Her sister stepped in and took the time to read her a story in the tub when I didn’t.
Today those little girls are in their last day of Kindergarten. 
It’s going by so quickly – just like everyone says.
In one little year they learned to read and if Mommy is too busy to read to them, it’s ok, they can read to themselves now.  Where once they needed me, now they don’t. 
How lame to be too busy to honor their requests.  These seasons are fleeting, we must embrace them and live into them fully, for in the blink of an eye they will be gone.

Happy Weekend All!
Next Friday I'm kicking off my Summer series... A Summer Romance!  I can't wait!


  1. But, Raeanne, you can't do everything...and shouldn't try. I think this is a wonderful thing! You read to them when you can. And when you can't, they understand and use their new found skill. A Mommy's choices are hard. We'll always miss something. But I know you. And I know that you choose the best things, the best you can.

  2. Isn't it precious that they read to each other? I love it when I find Hannah reading to Alyssa. What a blessing for them to be able to serve each other in that way.

  3. I also feel guilty when I'm "too busy" to do things for Victoria, but we can't do it all, we can try.
