happywife_happylife You could often find me resting here between the hours of 12 & 1. When all the men around me sleep I slip silently into this chair. Solitude, a hiding place but no it's more than that. A finding place. Finding the joy from today just past. Finding me again, looking inward. Selflessness and selfishness intertwined. Grace embraces my humanity. Finding prayers I should not forgot to pray. Finding Him, with no distractions. God. My Rescuer. In & out, air passes from nose to lungs, back again. Revival, these are long days of dying. Beautiful death, that keeps me alive. Truly alive, fighting, for love. For love. I die, I live. For them, for Him. In these hours, in this finding place, I find my place and all is right and well. My soul sings. 12h

happywife_happylife Little stool for small feet to rest on. So many transitions right now... The growing up of my baby boys. Listening to the Liturgists and praying for peace and wisdom. Calm. When it's too easy to get overwhelmed. Last night I had my melt down cry. Today is new, I was made for this. This job that is a million jobs. Grace. Letting the wonder & excitement grow bigger than the pressure. The mess is perfect. Responding to tears instead of laundry. The hard conversations with my sons. We are a team, working together, working through, growing...
I love having all you Mamas here to share in this journey with! Seeing your worlds as you raise your children and tend to your homes and husbands. I am thankful for you!! xo
