And the Days Just Keep On Flying…

Wow! 

Has it REALLY been almost a month since my last post???? 

Unbelievable! 

We have been busy, busy, busy with school, mission fundraisers (for our sweet friends who are moving to Lesotho), field trips, work, getting wisdom teeth out (both boys), spring conference with the youth at church, and everything else that life brings 🙂 …you know.  Laundry, cooking, music lessons, church activities, projects, family events, appointments…and on and on and on.  Whew – I’m wearing myself out just typing it all!

  But you know what?

I am so grateful for this time in my life.  As busy as it is most days, I know that these times are fleeting.

I will never get these days back.

And I remember the words from Luke 2:19:

But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.”

Whenever I start to feel overwhelmed, I try to stop and remind myself to “treasure” these days and “ponder”  (remember) the fact that these days are the best and most precious days of my life.

I’m living my dream! 

I get to be a mom, wife, homemaker, and learn with my kids each and every day…and I couldn’t ask for anything more!
