Longest Day of the Year.
Sometimes when you are intently waiting for something , everything else is overlooked. You stare so intently on a goal you forget entirely the world has continued to spin. Your vision may get so focused on one thing… you barely notice all the blessings bursting around you.
I am reminded how strong my girls are:: when I watch them sit by the pool and read… or swim for hours.
I am reminded of how thankful I am for my grandmother:: when I see her up and about laughing one moment at her grandsons… or rolling her eyes at my grandfather.
I am reminded at how amazing my sons are:: as they produce shelves and wooden swords everyday.
I am reminded how awesome it is to have a level headed teenager (oh my gosh!) with a servants heart:: as I drop him off to help with a friends house renovation.
I am reminded that I don’t need to tend to everything:: when I go out to the much overlooked garden and things are thriving in my neglect.
I am reminded I still have some wits about me:: when I can weed through the HTML code on my new Tutorials page.
I am reminded that everybody has a birthday:: when I go into labor and wake up pregnant every morning.
I am reminded all the time that I have very little control over things:: when everyone calls and texts me that today would be a great day to have a baby.
I am reminded how much everyone loves us:: when they call and text us that today would be the perfect day to have a baby.
