Nite Nite Moon
Goodnight Moon is a book that I received from someone when Karson was born, and since then I have read it countless times to both him and his sister. Tonight with both of them cuddled in my lap while we rocked back and forth together in the almost 4 year old rocking chair, I once again read Goodnight Moon. Only this time, Karson said most of the words. Now he's done this before due to the times we've read it together he has it memorized, but tonight it hit me a little differently...it hit me in my heart. I listened as he "read" it to his sister and I and he even quietly said, "hush" when it was in the book, to which his sister mimicked him by whispering too. I sat still and took a mental picture...and thought back to about 2 years ago...we were walking into our house one night and Karson stopped in the driveway and looked up at the bright shinning moon. He didn't have alot of words, but he pointed with his little stumpy finger and and said, "nite, nite moon." I can hear his little voice echo in my ear like it just happened. Fast forward back to tonight and I hear Karis copy her brother and say "nite moon." Time is going by so quickly and yet some days seem to creep by with interesting monotony though I don't want them to speed up. I'm reminded of a verse in 1 Thessalonians that says, "Be joyful always...give thanks in all circumstances" Thank you Lord for the two little lives that I have been blessed with, two little souls that bring so much joy into my life. Nite, nite Moon.
