Two years ago this week, my life changed for the absolute better. I took a trip to see a friend, who’s family I had known for 25 years and yet I’d never met him. I didn’t expect to find in him the man of my dreams, the man who was equally yoked to my soul, the man who I had searched for all of my life. A year ago, I wrote about our meeting, our day, our beginning and I’ve decided I would share it here as well.
I never expected that I’d marry this man, that I’d want to spend my life with him. I never expected that he’d love me and my children just as much. I never expected this life to be ours. God had plans we could not have foreseen but here we are living this life together and the best has yet to come.
There are blessings where we least expect them.
And another week bites the dust.
I’m totally off schedule. I feel behind in the plans I had. I need to set up a better plan to stay on track.
Emma is talking my head off. Distracting me from what I need to do but that’s okay because I don’t mind hearing her talk. She’s such a social creature.
Laycie is putting all her energy into learning about baby possums. She’s learned so much about them. Next week we will dive deeper into some lessons to learn a little more.
Winston has been working on his Minecraft game, mowing grass, building social skills. He’s ready for another Georgia trip. He had a lot of fun. I’m glad.
Jackson is busy busy. He’s learning big, little and middle in sizes. He’s learning that Daddy is big and Mommy is big and he is little. He’s learning colors like grey. He is counting to 10 on his own. He’s gaining new skills every day. He can balance on his head on the couch. And today he actually held the possum. He asked without prompting. I was totally proud of him.
So life is busy and unorganized right now but we’re working on it and we’re enjoying life together. Life is messy but joy overcomes the mess every day. So for now I’m living in the moment and letting life go as it will.
Until next time…
Outside my window, I hear trucks passing by.
Mow the grass.
Write reviews for both Women Who Move Mountains and Knights In Training.
God never fails us.
