Many things

Oooooh, it’s been a while.

I’ve been so busy lately.  So much has been going on.  So many plans in the works that change on a dime.  Our family has always been one of motion.

I often feel like life is this piano I’m trying to play.

All of these little lives intersect and interweave and play along, and the tune is different.  To a lot of people, my life looks very noisy. It may be hard for them to pick out the actual tune in my life.

But it’s really very beautiful.  You just have to have the right ears.

I find that my children strike my soul when I look at them this week.

They make me question everything about myself and everything I’m doing.

I find myself rekindling this week.  Recommitting to a full life of vibrant motherhood.

This is their time.  And it is going so fast.

I want to do better.

I look into their big eyes and know that they are watching me.  They are learning from me at every second.

I just pray they will learn the good things.  The love, the joy.

I’m so grateful I’m not alone in teaching them.

We have an eight-year-old now.  For me, that’s very humbling.

What would I ever do without her?

I know I’m kind of rambling today.  There are so many thoughts about my life I wish I could put into words.

I am trying to figure out how to live in the moment better.

I feel like I miss too many little moments.

I love my life.  I’m trying very hard to figure it out and make it better.

There are moments that just make my heart sing.  Moments with the girls this week.

Moments with beautiful people like this:

(I can’t seem to stop looking at these pictures.)

And moments with him.

Blessed am I.  And I know it.

    I still can’t believe that she is 8. Man, I remember when she was born and the visits we used to have. I sure miss them!
