I suppose if we were sitting down for coffee I would tell you that a lot is going on over here in these parts. Some for the heavy hearted and some for the great & exciting. It’s been quite a mix lately.
I would tell you that if you ran into me at the grocery store on a regular day I would most likely be dressed just like this.
I would tell you that I was fixing spaghetti tonight and was singing a song while I was stirring the sauce. I don’t have a pretty singing voice and must have been a bit lost in the moment. I turned around to find Aiden sitting at the table with huge tears filling those big beautiful eyes of his.
” Mama, that slow sad song made me cry a little bit”.
His tender heart is the most beautiful thing to me.
I would tell you that my girls are growing like weeds and that Aiden and Ainsleigh actually talked on the phone with one another this week. I was somewhere with Aiden, he tells me to call Ainsleigh (who was with Chris) because he needs to tell her something and they had a real phone convo.
Where are my babies going?
I would tell you that I was telling a friend this week ” you think my kids will care how many followers I have? No, they will care about who I am, how I spend time with them and how I make them a priority.” It’s a constant balance. But it’s true.
My kids need their mama.
I would ask you how you are doing and see what is happening in your world.
I would tell you that some days I feel like I am doing it all great, doing life at its best….and others I feel like I am gasping for air.
I guess that is the way of life eh?
I would tell you that sitting over a nice hot chocolate or a bowl of coffee ice cream was just what my soul needed today. That friendships are so rare. and so beautiful and that God has just blessed me with some of the dearest of the dear in the past 2 years.
I am thankful.
