Life has lots of ups and downs, but right now things are feeling so sweet and I just want to soak it all in as much as I can. Current things that make me thankful:
-Enjoying my job! It has been awhile since I have been able to say this. I am so thankful to have a job where I can use my gifts and talents well and work with a great team of people.
-Watching James learn how to ride a balance bike.
-Holding Charles close in the baby carrier while he is still small enough.
-Regular quality time with family. It is such a gift to have so many of them so close for support, fun, and the occasional baby sitter as well.
-A nanny who LOVES Charles and James, which makes going to work so much easier!
-A husband who loves me and the boys well and is such a hard worker. He goes above and beyond so often and is such a wonderful example for our boys.
-Bedtime routines that include lots of reading, playtime, and nighttime prayers. You never know what a 2.5 year old will pray for.
-The fellowship of a small group and how Jesus is growing us and stretching us greatly.
-Deep friendships that anchor me and rejuvenate my soul.
I know all too well that this season will be gone before I know it, but I give thanks for the sweetness of right now.
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:17
