Yesterday we took our routine afternoon walk and one of my boys fell behind the others to chat with me. He noticed I was a little slow. I had an infection a couple weeks back and took them on a road trip a couple days back…so I was a wee bit tired. And when I tried to rest, the kids needed me to serve as a referee or nurse…not conducive to relaxation.
My son: Mom, you seem tired.
Me: Yup, I am…I could use a rest.
Him: I don’t think Moms get rests…Dads do.
Him: Yeah, you kinda have to wait until you die…then you can rest in Heaven.
Me: . . .wow!
Hope we all can get a glimpse of Heaven and rest these days of summer!
