Our Week

This past week has been filled with many emotions. In case you didn't know, my sweet mother-in-law Rose passed away just over a week ago. We all gathered together in Oklahoma to remember her life. As I listened to everyone talk and share stories I was overcome with such joy. She will be missed for sure but there was such hope and expectation in the air that we will see her again someday in Heaven. 

We got to see family that we hadn't seen in a while.  I laughed more than I have in a long time. It made me realize all the more how blessed I am, It's easy for me to lose sight of that, you know. It's really easy to just get caught up in the every day routine of life and forget how precious it is.

I also had another revelation. My daughter needs way less stuff than I think she does. Honestly, we had a couple stuffed animals, coloring books, and a kindle for her instead of her room full of toys. She made do and used her creativity. She didn't watch very much television and just interacted with people. It was a breath of fresh air and has made me see that I want to change the structure of our days.

I'll close for now but it's nice to feel a pull toward personal blogging again. I've fiercely missed writing and look forward to talking with you again soon.
