Can you swing me?


When I was in India, Steve sent emails with direct quotes from the kids.
Here's what Liberty said ...
Liberty - i miss you i love you.. i.... can you swing me when you get home.  i want you to play candy land with me when I'm done.  and thats all. 

Can you swing me?
She asks me this question nearly every day.

Pushing her on the swing forces me to slow down and enjoy the moment.
It forces me to enjoy having little ones at home.
Little ones who cannot yet swing themselves but still need me.

It's so easy to get caught up with the busyness of life.
School takes so much time and energy, taking me away from simple things like pushing Liberty.
Mavuno Market is all consuming.

So, it's good for me to stop.
To just stand for a moment and push my little ones.

  1. Ohhhh, they are so darn cute. Yes, I get asked to swing her too. A treat, as she informed me she is learning to swing herself. AND... i get to play lion on the trampoline. These are the gifts of grace in our lives.
