This last week has been such a sweet reminder of how much I love being a stay at home mom. By the grace of God, all the laundry is done and put away, my house is clean, and my kids are at peace. We have stayed on top of school and have even worked ahead. I enjoyed a little girl date with Sarah and Rebekah and then all 6 of us(dad had to work) had a mid week trip to the park with snow cones.
But not this week. I am overwhelmed with thankfulness for my calling...to be a wife and a mom. I desire nothing else. Big salary checks, traveling the world, awards & recognition is nothing compared to holding chubby little hands or hearing my kids say they love me. These busy times of potty training, home schooling, hearing "Will you please come wipe me?" at least 7 times a day, and never ending "quick pick ups" will be over all too soon. I pray that I would not wish all the "work" away but that I would cherish every moment...even when it is hard.
Lord, my heart is literally bursting with gratefulness. Thank you for blessing me with my precious family. You are so patient with me and I love that You "gently lead those who are with young." Isaiah 40:11
Our date after ballet: Quiznos, Carvel Ice Cream, playing by the fountains
