Time Really Does Fly!

I pull my socks off and rub my feet gently across the carpeted floor. It feels amazing! So nice in fact I can’t help but sit and then all resistance crumbles and I lower myself down and stretch out. Seeing this a giggling Jayden comes running towards me and launches himself at me. I put my arms out just in time as he lands on top of me with a muffled thump. I hug him close and we have a tickle war. A few minutes later, the burst of energy fades and holding his little, not so white anymore blanket close, he snuggles besides me on the carpet close to the fireplace. “Mama go to sleep,” he says and obligingly I close my eyes. The friendly warmth of the fire wraps around me and with Jayden’s little hand tucked in mine sleep doesn’t seem so improbable after all. My thoughts wander to the last two weeks and I still can’t believe they’ve flown by so fast. It’s 8:00 p.m. and we’ve just returned home from dropping Jason off at the Bellingham airport. Was it really two weeks ago already that I had picked him up there? Snapshots of memories made flash through my mind. Moving to our own place and making it feel homey,

swimming at the Leisure Centre,

a special weekend with Jason in Victoria,

Reading books to Jayden, snuggling on the couch, eating dinner at our own table, talking for hours, and just enjoying the time we had together as a family.

Joy and thankfulness at God’s goodness fills my heart as I stare into the flickering flames of the fireplace. All thoughts and worries about the unknown future are gone. He cares for us, why should I worry?


  1. Hey,
