I’m sitting her listening to The Wheels of the Bus Go Round and Round with 9-month old Luke. I shared with you last June how Luke came into our lives as a gift and a surprise. We will always be grateful to the birth parents who allowed my daughter and son-in-law (and all of us) to love sweet baby Luke.

Right now he’s jumping in his Jumpy Jupiter dancing with Gramma. It’s a sight you don’t want to see, but that we are both loving like crazy.

What a treasured moment.

How many simple moments like this will we look back on and realize how special they really were?

In the midst of busyness. In the midst of our plans. In the midst of all the things we think we should be accomplishing.

I realize that the most important thing I do today — though I have chapters to write, and devotions to finish, and speaking engagements to prepare — just might be dancing to The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round with a baby boy with blond curls spilling over blue eyes.
