My heart has been heavy lately, ya’ll.
I know the sleep deprivation hasn’t helping, but I’ve been feeling a little bit empty. At least, I haven’t been filled up the past few months. I’m floating here in between this temporary home and our forever adventure. It is so bittersweet, I’m thrilled to head into a new, less messy, season of our lives and sad to say “see you later” to so many people I love. With this bitter sweet transition, I feel dazed and unfocused.
My intentions as wife, mother, friend, and whatever else just haven’t been there. I have been going through the motions of life, and missing opportunities to love and enjoy the moments between here and there. The present, I’m missing it. Sometimes, I am daydreaming about tomorrow and miss today. The truth is, I think a lot of us do that. I think a lot of us go through our days, especially with young kids, and miss multiple chances to savor. Our present lives, the raw, the boring, the hilarious, the messy, and even the teachable moments.
My heart goals right now are you stay present, love more, serve more, laugh more. To look forward to things, without forgetting to relish today.
How perfect is this shirt that reads “Love Jesus, Serve Others?” From my new friend Persimmon Prints. and as always, thank you Gift of Today Photography for making me feel like a babe.
