Him and Me

This blog has fallen by the wayside.  Truth be known, I've lost my desire.  Not to mention there's a lack of  time.  My confidence in being open and honest is shaky.  Basically making this blog pointless.  I'll either delete it or make it private in time.

The past few months have been bittersweet on so many levels.  It seemed like it was one thing after the other.  To be honest it was quite trying at times.  But I (we) have been made so thankful that our Father knows and plans our way.  And we've proven that His timing is perfect.  Regardless of what we may think at the time.  We've learned to trust more fully and deeply in Him.

My husband had some shows lined up in western NY.  Because of the circumstances, it was very last minute he decided to commit to them.  I was lucky to tag along.  Naturally we missed our kids.  But it was a wonderfully, perfect, spur of the moment getaway for us.  Perfect timing.

Without going into specific detail, there was a very unexpected event that took place in our lives.  But that 'ol familiar saying "All's well that ends well" holds very true.  (Everything is fine and back to normal today)  After the event and at times, even during, I had such an overwhelming thankfulness.  For so, so many things. 

It saddens me that it often takes a good shaking/wake up call for things to be put back into perspective.  But every day life has a way of making us calloused.  The same 'ol routine, day after day.  We take things for granted.

There's no denying that the past few days have opened my eyes on so many levels.  At the same time I've learned to appreciate things in ways I never have before.  My heart is full of thankfulness.

So while today there's a million and one things I should/could be doing, I'm sitting back and savoring each moment with our little family.  Soaking up so much more than the sunshine.  After all, my chores will wait for me, as they always do.  Cleaning and laundry are a  never ending cycle.  And thats fine.  It's all part of life as a stay-at-home-mom.

But today that's all on the back burner.  Today we're basking in thankfulness.

Carolyn Rose

Happy 6th Birthday Carolyn Rose!
Six short years ago today you were born.   Here you are.. 6 years old.  So grown up. Such a great helper.  A mother hen.  The sweetest smile.  Eager to learn.  Some say you look just like me.  Some say you look like Daddy's side.  But no matter how you look at it, we're so lucky to have a daughter like you.  Wishing you a birthday as fun and special as you are!

Happy 6th Birthday Carolyn Rose!!

XOXO - Mommy

Happy New Year!!

(google image)

I'm always amazed at how fast the year flies by.  And equally amazed at how much changes during each year.  2010 was a year we'll likely not forget anytime soon.  But here's looking to all that 2011 hold for us!

Happy New Years!
