simplysarahcard I need a swift kick in the arse.
Seems as though I have my head in the clouds again.
...but aren't they amazing today?

simplysarahcard Lunch date with my littlest love.
He came to the high school with me while I worked with some cast members of the musical.

To pay him for his time I took him to Acoustic.

simplysarahcard He crawled into bed this morning and didn't say a word.
Just made his way up to the pillow and snuggles in.
His head found *the* spot at my neck.
The same spot his tiny head would nuzzle in as a newborn.
The same spot his head would lay as a toddler when he wasn't feeling well.
The same spot that gets a quick visit when I hug him on a hard day.
I didn't want to get up.
Tears run down my cheeks.
I hope it wasn't the last time his head finds it's place in the carved out space of my neck where it fits like the piece of a puzzle.

simplysarahcard Sometimes all you can see is what is right in front of you at that very moment. Not something up ahead and certainly not something down the road a ways.
But isn't life better that way?
We find ourselves looking in all directions, not being able to see as far as our mind wanders. It leaves us full of worry. Builds up fear.
The good news is we don't have to know what's up ahead or down the road a ways.
We can leave the worry and fear on the side of the road.
We can choose to trust that there is a path that has been laid out for each one of us, better than we could come up with on our own.

simplysarahcard I'm an auntie again!
This feeling will never get old.
I am so taken aback by the experiences that have been put in my path.

To witness God's greatest miracle - the first breaths, the first cries, the tiny ears, the curled fingers. The way she knows her momma so well and she's only been on the outside for hours, not days.
The way her daddy looks at her with such awe, it takes the very breath from your chest.
The way your heart expands a bit with more love when you thought it was already full.

It just amazes me.

She's here. Sweet Muriel is here. And I love her so.

simplysarahcard He's so dang awesome.
His thought process blows my mind.
Yesterday he was playing with Nascars and minding his own business.
He comes up to me and goes, "Hey mom. Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Brent Burns are sort of the same."
(I must have had the most confused look on my face because one is a Nascar driver, the other an NHL player, and I see no similarities in the two.)
So I ask, "How so?"
To which he explains...
"Dale Earnhardt Jr. used to drive the 8 car for Budweiser and now he drives the 88 car for Mountain Dew. Brent Burns used to be number 8 when he played for the Wild, now he's number 88 for the Sharks. Now do you get it?"
"Yes. I totally get it." #kidsaresmart

  •   stark_ak Awww Brent Burns and Dale Earnhardt Jr... My favorites! (Even though I don't really follow racing anymore lol.) That's so awesome how he corelated the two!! 1mon
  •   simplysarahcard @stark_ak I know. It makes me want to think differently about things. Different perspective. :) 1mon

simplysarahcard Selfies at Jackson's last game of the season.
I am so proud of who my boy is on the ice, and even more of who he is off the ice.

simplysarahcard I dropped this handsome boy of mine off for a Winter Retreat at Bible Camp this afternoon.
I remember Bible Camp. It changed my middle school self.
He amazes me. He's growing and changing and maturing everyday. He's going to come home a little different than when he left.
A little more independent. A little more confident. A little closer to God. A little closer to spreading his wings.

I feel it all a little more every hour he is gone. He's becoming the person he was created to be, and while I wish he'd stay young forever, I can't wait to see what he does with his one wild and precious life.
