i have beautiful, tangible examples of God bringing encouragement and healing with sweet voicemails, texts, emails. surprise homemade dinners and friends encouraging me not to bail on play dates :). even when i was in such a funk that i could hardly see anything changing, things are changing in my soul.
in the day to day, God has been using my children to awaken my spirit as well...showing me what i will be missing if i don't choose to be present.
in the moments that seem chaotic and i try to get too much done at one time, i'm powerfully grasping what all the empty nesters are saying.
it goes by so fast.
sometimes i'd love for "it" to go by a bit faster...especially when i would love 5 uninterrupted moments all to my little self.
but what happens, only a few years from now, when it's hours and days and weeks and months that i have to my uninterrupted self?? when the toys crashing and kids spilling and people whining is over...the days like today will be over too. and today was a day i want to etch into my memory.
regular, plain, beautiful today.
