I'm calling a timeout right now. A timeout from the holiday prep, the daily cleaning, the political junk that fills our inboxes and facebook pages. A timeout from life. A "just hold it" on everything. And I want to count my greatest blessings. Yes of course there's my home, my husband's job, education, freedoms, yada yada. But I just read a series of blogposts from a girl that I went to highschool with who is facing an astronomical heart defect in her newborn baby, and it got me to thinking about all the "fluff" that surrounds us, and then what really matters:
I choose messy pictures on purpose, to show my reality pretty much each day.
They are healthy (though on the smaller side), they keep me on my toes (that is a picture of James who decided that he wanted some "white cheese", aka cream cheese, and without telling me opened it and began munching. And of course Jack being a messy boy), they sometimes drive me crazy (like James having three potty accidents today, and not all of them pee...), or won't stop screeching (Jack, in church, every Sunday, or any other time, and it's awesome when right in your ear), but they are healthy and growing and learning everyday.
They are my greatest blessings.
(Besides their handsome daddy :) )
What are your blessings?
