this is why

I’ll be back.  Pinky swear.

I’m just in the midst of growing.  Of healing.  Of God rewriting so much of me.  Of learning how to be more present in all that I do and create.

It’s beautiful.  I’m grateful.  It’s hard.  It’s worth it.

But…this.  This is the biggest why I’m not here… These two.

Double Trouble.  So much fun.  So many heart-attacks.  And please don’t judge my floors or the crazy amount of rules we broke here.  But if you do – it’s all good.  Just don’t say anything.  You can just pray for me…

    These are AMAZING! Love the tunnel idea, J! I hear you on being present, sister, and I commend your commitment to it. I’m going to try that as well.

    Rules? What rules? 😉 These pictures are so beautiful, full of such joy, energy, and life! While mine are too big for wrestling in the crib (try up on the loft bed instead…) I know that feeling of loving them to pieces, wanting to give them freedom to explore, trying to gently but firmly guide strong, free spirits and oh please let’s not go to the emergency room today! So much energy and so precious, these boys of yours. Thank you for sharing them and your heart. Peace to you today, momma!

    Loved the pictures. You remind me of when I was a young Mom with 3 kids.
    It was an adventure. Sometimes I cried. Sometimes I laughed. I know I made mistakes. But I also did my best. My house wasn’t perfect. The kids weren’t either. But now I look back and wonder how I did it. Working full time. Going to school and raising kids
    I guess us Moms do what we need to. I had to remind myself not to be so hard
    On myself.
    You seem like an awesome Mom that is doing the best she can.
    Someday in the near future you’ll probably wonder how you did it too
    I apologized to my kids when they were all older. They didn’t know why I was apologizing They didn’t even know I made mistakes. Anyway. Keep up the great work raising those beautiful kids. Love reading about the antics. Laurie
