For once, I am not going to blog about something crafty. We had a good family friend pass away this week and I started really thinking about my own family. How lucky and blessed my husband and are every day. I have been spending the evening going back through some of the baby pictures and it just makes me so filled with joy that I have this wonderful family.
I think sometimes I get caught up in the material things I don't really need.
Or really want, but I think I do at the time.
It makes me realize that God really does give us what we need even if we don't think so. And as a mother, I need to stop more and enjoy where I am in life. It goes fast. I can hardly tell sometimes which picture belongs to who...I mean none of them even really look like their baby photos any more.
People tell me to "Enjoy it now while they are young, while it's easy." and when they say that, all I can think is.. it gets harder????
!!!AAAAHH! Especially when there are days I feel so overwhelmed already.
But it's all relative, isn't it? To remember to stop and look where we are and to smell the roses while it's still spring.
