Some times–my little ones just take my breath away. I turned around and saw my angel sipping on her milkshake tonight and just had to snag the moment…she’ll be grown and gone before I know it. How I love her.
Everyone got a sweet treat tonight. Loo wanted a Sonic shake. But the boys–oh the boys had the right idea:). They wanted cupcakes from a sweet little shop in our historic town. Not sure which looks more delicious. The cupcakes…or my boys…
I think everyone in the sweet shop stopped to be entertained by these cuties. I like to THINK they were happily entertained…but we may have disturbed their peace;).
But I’m quite sure they were entertained TOO.
Watching Frankie baby wait patiently for his cupcake in his tie…
And then to watch him eat it…not so patiently;)
Seriously…I could just gobble up my little ones.
And then…the sandlot kid. The one that can knock a black walnut ball over the fence…
They just take me back.
And they make me feel like I was made to live in another time.
A slower one.
Where there isn’t email…or portable phones. Or distractions from the here-and-now.
Where there are few expectations from the world…and really…I let so many of those go a long time ago.
This mom is perfectly content just being with my family. Spending time with them. And just being together. (If you’ve sent me an email or tried to call me…and it’s gone unanswered–please forgive me…I really do live in a different world. I was made for the early days I’m convinced. If I see you on the sidewalk though, at the grocery…or you come by for a visit–now that’s a different story…I’m telling you–I was made for another time. Or either I’m just really bad at returning calls and emails:)
Each morning…is a chance to love them more. To invest into their hearts. To dig deeper into their thoughts. And each day is new…and fresh…and it’s never too late.
I’m so thankful for how the Lord has led us in the last year…
To slow down and really enjoy RIGHT where He has us…RIGHT now…
Blessings to you as you begin a NEW week.
A fresh one.
Where you can slow down…and enjoy the moments. RIGHT where He has you.
P.S. Excited to finally have my rheumatologist appointment tomorrow at 10am!!! More blood work–but hopeful we will know more! Currently I have a diagnosis of Lyme’s disease and with my blood tests–the doctor thinks I’ve had it for over a year which has caused a lot of other problems (vision, arthritis, fatigue…the list goes on) and which also means it’s beyond just a simply antibiotic treatment. Because of some of the problems caused by this–I’m now having to lay off the gluten and sugar (two of my favorite ingredients;). My blood work also showed possible Lupus and Sogren’s–and you can’t adopt from China with Lupus–so I’m praying that one will be ruled out. If it’s not…it will be one door closed. But where one door closes another one opens…and we the momma of the house needs to be 100% healthy (or at least close to it) before growing again. Say a prayer that I’ll be better and back to myself soon!!! Thank you so much for prayers! May you have a blessed day!
