jumps of life

the jump of life comes full force most days
a thrilled child running at you
it came out
it came out
i twisted it and look!
his has lost his first tooth
and i wasn't ready for this jump
i wasn't ready to look at my sweet little boy
toothless
with small tiny tooth in hand
the tooth that i cradled and soothed
as it broke through just yesterday....right?
but the jumps of life
don't wait for you to be ready
they don't wait for you to prepare yourself
they just happen
and you must choose to smile and enjoy
and pray and be thankful
that God is in control
of the jumps of life

  1. I love this!! My baby just started Kindy. When did he jump from a wee babe in my arms to this? Treasure the moments before they jump away.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
