Mud Puddles

When I see a mud puddle I step around it. I see muddy shoes and dirty carpets.
My kids sit in it. They see dams to build, rivers to cross, and worms to play with.

I wonder if we are given kids to teach or to learn from? No wonder God loves the little children! Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

With five kids I had a gazillion messy pictures to choose from, but with mud covering Ellie from head to toe "messy" seemed like an understatement for this picture.

Be sure to go check I ♥ Faces for lots more messy photos this week.
