Wow… I’ve realized it’s been a long time since I’ve done a personal post. I’ll admit, I haven’t been the best at blogging lately, but it’s mostly because I’m trying to be as present as I can with my kids and not the computer screen. But tonight I feel like the words might just flow right onto the keys. As I’m writing this, my kids are fast asleep and the sun has started ending our days earlier. My nostalgia for these summer days have already began. My oldest starts another year of preschool next week and I can’t even believe it. I can feel my stomach flip as I think it… summer 2017 is gone… forever. Another season for the books. wow, time is flying. I’m constantly questioning if I’m living the way I want, being intentional about the things that are important to me, taking the time for family and pictures of my own kids. Trying to be a better mom everyday and asking God to give me more patience and grace.
It’s kinda funny how I’ve changed since becoming a mom. I’m so much more emotional that I used to be and I cry at any remotely heart wrenching story I hear. I’m far less of a risk taker. That used to be my thing, always adventuring and taking some sort of risk (at least to me, even if not a big one). The days are passing. I want to look back on this sweet life like a beautiful messy novel that was real to the core, but full of love and heart.
