This is Life
We are about to enter another ‘Transition Year’. Next fall I will officially have a high-schooler, middle-schooler, and, thankfully, one still in elementary school.
All this makes me wonder where the time has gone, and also, how can I hold on to the time I have left with them here at home?
It has also made me very grateful for the moment. Grateful for the mess and chaos, (if you would believe it?) because someday my kids will be gone and the house will be a lot quieter. I’ll miss that mess and chaos.
So last Saturday I decided to document my home and how my family occupies it. Wanna see?
These pictures reveal my kids in their natural states if left alone— connected to their electronics!
This last picture gives me a little lump in my throat when I realize that those shoes, coats, and backpacks that get dumped on the floor after school won’t always be there. I need to remember that the next time I get exasperated by all the mess!
This is life. It’s a good life and I feel very, very blessed!
What are your blessings? What will you be remembering fondly years from now?
Have a Wonderful Week!
