It Feels Good to be Needed

I don't know if you've felt it or noticed, but I've been backing off of the blogging quite a bit lately.  This is simply because these three little girls all still need me very much. 

They are still so small.  And they need me to help them with nearly every little task... dressing their dolls & themselves (except Olivia), lifting, zipping, stacking, eating, wiping, climbing, pouring, reaching, and pottying (except Olivia, again).

They need me to teach them about speaking kindly, preferring one another, and showing compassion.
They need me to train them to love work, to persevere in every task, and to take seriously their little (but not really) responsibilities.
They need me to model a meek & quiet heart, a joy in serving, and loving respect to their daddy.

So forgive me if I'm not so regular about this little speck on the blogosphere, okay?

I've got lots of work to do,
and precious time to redeem!
