Someday the clothes will all be washed and put away, but the closets will be empty.
Someday the house will be quite, but there will no longer be the laughter of children that makes me smile.
Someday there won't be toys all over the house, but the house will feel like an empty tomb.
Someday dishes will always be clean, but the dishes will collect dust as they sit there waiting for someone to use them.
Someday my food bill will be almost nothing, but no one will be there to share the meals I make.
Someday I won't be a the "soccer" mom hauling kids everywhere, but I won't get to watch them with pride and say to other parents, "That's my kid!".
Someday I will look back and wish I had more time with my kids. This time with them is precious.
Today is the day to be OK with the things that can bring me down.
Today is the day to appreciate all the gifts that have been given me.
Today is the day to hug and kiss your children and thank God they are in your lives.
Tomorrow you can enjoy the peace and joy that comes when you raise your kids to love God and love others.
