Small Graces

A weekly reflection inspired in part by Bob Bennett's song "Small Graces".

"these are the small graces, the little moments when the miracles come...
they are a reminder to the heart there is more to life than meets the eye...
...sometimes they slip by without notice
sometimes they are very hard to see
other times it's very clear when they are happening to me" 

 the privilege of being their mommy

watching her practice her mommy skills

seriously, sometimes watching her makes may heart feel like it's going to burst
*random but if you are looking for a first baby doll the disney princess babies are great. little lady has been given quite a few babies and this one is by far her favorite. it's also fairly inexpensive and durable. 

their adoration for their cousins

little cousin-friends, mixed prints, and pretty dishes.
it's fun to watch these two bond over the same things their mothers do - except we prefer wine to water.

blanket love and a happy face

knowing that my kiddos have grandparents, aunts, and uncles who adore them

Last week was good but it also left me exhausted; I am very grateful that Jeremy let me get in a two hour nap yesterday. I subbed everyday last week and my is body is definitely not used to getting up at 5:30 anymore. I only worked two full days, the rest were just short opening shifts, but it's still left me feeling behind on all the home stuff. I know I said it last week too but major props to all the full time working moms out there - you are amazing!

Even with busyness of last week we were able to fit in quite a few happy moments. We celebrated Mother's Day with Maca and Jeremy's sister Heather's family. Another highlight was finally getting the leopard gecko the boys have patiently been waiting for.  And like most weeks there were also meet ups with good friends at the park and library. Since the weather has warmed up the kids and I have been walking most places which could also help explain why I feel so tired. 

Next week is looking just as busy but it will end with an extra special treat - The annual Lindsey Memorial Day gathering. We are all looking forward to family time, good food, laughs, and hanging by the pool.  Now to just it make to Friday :)
