Did you miss my scenes from the weekend?
You didn't miss much.
It was a yoga-pants wearing weekend.
A weekend where I spent too much time getting ready for a craft fair and not enough time with my girls.
Josh was gone hunting.
To be honest, it was a hard weekend.
Today was a hard day.
We went to a funeral of an amazing man who died too young.
A man who left his bride, 4 daughters, grandkids, . . .
The church was PACKED.
He touched so many lives including ours and he will be tremendously missed.
It was also a very special day as we celebrated Kaitlyn's 8th birthday.
Can someone tell me how my first baby is already 8 years old?
Seriously! It makes my heart hurt.
She came with us to Helena
and spent sweet time with my aunt while Josh and I were at the funeral.
My Aunt Lori is the best.
She made Kaitlyn feel so special.
She took her out to lunch, rode the carousel- TWICE- had ice cream, played games, . . .
I am so thankful that on a hard day, Kaitlyn was able to
"have the best birthday ever" because of my aunt.
Thank you Lori!
So, I've been thinkin'.
And I need to make some changes.
We don't know how long our time will be on earth.
But I do know that I want to make it all matter.
I am filling my life with too many things that don't really matter.
I'm not quite sure yet what changes I need to make,
but I do know that I will be spending more quality time with my family (LESS time crafting).
I want to make more of an effort to spend intentional time
with the people God has blessed me with in my life.
I want to slow down and cherish the time with my sweet babies.
Because as much as I tell them to stop growing,
they just keep growing.
I want to go on more dates with my hubbie and have weekends with "nothing to do".
I want to grow deeper in my relationship with God.
Not sure exactly how,
but I need to make better use of my time for these important things.
Sometimes it takes a hard day (or hard weeks)
to help you realize that changes need to be made.
Hope you make time today to spend quality time with the ones you love.
