The need to be held

Sharing laughs and food

Billy twirls Bennett and his future wife Emmy

Amos gives Easter smiles

This morning began with me feeding Amos while Bennett was tugging at my pant legs demanding to be held with tears and frustration. i spend most days like this lately....one of the boys longing for me to hold them. I know one day i will BEG for them to want me to hold them...but for now i am kinda getting tired of the constant tug at my sleeve. This NEED to be held...this longing for sole attention ..this desire to have a playmate...and play all day are real desires of their heart. AS an adult i forget this need....anyway...here are a few pics from Easter...PLAYING hard. and i digress...turn my attention and gaze towards my boys to play a little...HAPPY EASTER SEASON...may GOD be alive in our lives....giving us HIS attention and holding us and our desires.
