My wonderful husband made me a tree swing for Mother's Day. Our whole family can sit on it, swinging in the breeze. When Ella is napping, me and the boys head for the tree swing. They both place their heads on my lap and we sway back and forth, they stare up at the leaves. We talk about all the things God has given us...this house, our yard, the pretty peonies and irises popping open, the breeze, and this wonderful swing. "This feels good Mommy," Eli says. Owen whispers, "Go higher!" I push us back so we really sway on these strong limbs. You see, it's the perfect gift, for I get to pause life for about 10 minutes every day, and sometimes more. The boys, and even the baby girl are content just swinging, swaying and feeling the breeze.
