Hi friends! Happy Thursday.
This week has gone SO fast, anyone else? It has been a full one, but full of many really great things. I’m excited to tell ya’ll more soon!
I knew what I wanted to write today because the inspiration kept coming back time and time again. Also, when I’m also short on time to blog, it’s best if I blog from my heart and follow that inspiration.
I’m going to take you back to last Monday for this post.
I was in tears several times. But don’t worry…they were the good kind. The happy kind. The thankful kind.
I was home with Maxwell that day. I love my days at home SO much and try to soak him in hard. As if soaking him in hard during my off days will make my days at work easier. I’m thankful that we have time just the two of us, two days a week.
There I was watching him joyfully play and I burst into tears. He looked up at me with his big beautiful brown eyes as if to say, “What the heck mama? We’re playing!”
I hugged him and held him closely (for about the minute he would let me squeeze him before he needed to get down and play again).
That exact same thing happen several more times that day.
Later I was telling my husband about how my thankfulness and love for Maxwell had brought me to tears. And about my thankfulness and love for him. How blessed I feel for this incredible life that we built together.
I told Drew, today brought me to my knees. Thanking God for this time in our life. For me, it is so important to remember to stop and be thankful when really good things are happening. To give that praise and glory to God.
I told him, I know that life will bring me to my knees seeking the Lord when tough things happen and they are bound to. Not in a pessimistic way, but in a realistic way. Our lives on Earth are not meant to be easy or without trials.
But that Monday, that Monday was a beautiful one.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
