Innocent Wonder


My husband is gone for flight training for his job. He's been gone three weeks and I have three more to go. I feel as if I am living in a menagerie some days while I'm holding down the fort with three little ones underfoot. The above photo, though old, says it all.

However, the website I Heart Faces is having their weekly contest and this week's theme is "Innocent Wonder". I actually think the picture fits the theme quite well. If you've read my blog for a while, you know that my kids wear costumes just about everyday and they live in a world of make believe, magic, and wonderful impossibilities flying on the wings of their imaginations. I love it. Several times a day they come and explain to me their latest imaginative creation and it's such a delightful stage of life. It's full of innocence where the good guys always win just in time for dinner and bedtime.

If you've never heard this song, well, it says so much about a Mommy's heart. You can hear it if you scroll down to it on the playlist on the sidebar. ------------->

"In My Arms" by Plumb

Your baby blues
So full of wonder
Your curly cues
Your contageous smile
And as I watch
You start to grow up
All I can do is hold you tight

Knowing clouds will rage
And storms will race in
But you will be safe in my arms
Rains will pour down
Waves will crash all around
But you will be safe in my arms

Story books full of fairy tales
Of kings and queens and the bluest skies
My heart is torn just in knowing
You'll someday see the truth from lies

Knowing clouds will rage
And storms will race in
But you will be safe in my arms
Rains will pour down
Waves will crash all around
But you will be safe in my arms

Castles they might crumble
Dreams may not come true
But you are never all alone
Because I will always
Always love you

Clouds will rage
And storms will race in
But you will be safe in my arms
Rains will pour down
Waves will crash all around
But you will be safe in my arms
