Small Graces

The last couple weeks have been good ones. We've had a lot of great family moments: the boys went to a monster truck rally, Little Lady and I had girls' night in, we all went to a Valentine's tea together, and lots of other simple everyday things. We've also been able to host some great people in our home: one of Jeremy's classes, a terrific family we are just getting to know, and a few playdates. And on top of that we've been able to meet up with friends for fun outings around town. I know that family, and the people God has placed in our lives, is the most important thing. I know that time with them is a treasure and is never wasted or regretted. The thing is, though, I like goals and finished projects. There's been times these last two weeks were I've had to look at unfinished tasks and reminded myself that I was choosing the better thing. That talking to my daughter as she completes one more craft, or choosing to hang out with friends instead of finishing my own household projects is the right choice. Sometimes I can get so caught up in making everything appear perfect that I end up missing some life's most precious gifts. I'm thankful for the moments that I didn't let pass me by the last couple of weeks. 

Fun times at home...

Monster truck rally...



This was not quite a happy event, but Big Buddy had to get two of his baby teeth pulled (his grown-up teeth were starting to come in) and he was such a trooper! Proud of him for being so brave! 



This post is part of weekly series inspired in part by Bob Bennett's song "Small Graces".

these are the small graces,
little moments when the miracles come...
small graces leading me to the larger one...

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
