  • Husband home for the weekend
  • Homemade rolls
  • Southern California weather
  • Shelter from the wind
  • Children to care for
  • Small hands to hold
  • Larger hands to care for me
  • Legos, legos, legos
  • Abby’s words, “Okay mommy?” usually when I look tired. Sweet girl.
  • Hudson’s words, too many to list
  • Hudson learning phonics
  • “R-A-N,’ what does that spell, Mommy?” He sounds it out. “Does that spell ran?”
  • KidsTV123 on YouTube
  • A morning with my kids close. After many events away from home, this is a treat.
  • Sesame street. Seriously, the funniest show ever. Give me Grover every day.
  • A day with family
  • Walks in beautiful weather

  • Reaching a breaking point in parenting, and surviving
  • The grace to freely ask for help
  • Answers
  • Strength to go on
  • This, too, shall pass
  • Growing patience like a child. Maybe I’m in the “first trimester” and that’s why the process is so tiring?
  • A partner to do this with. I love him so much, more than the day I married him.
  • Blue eyes, blond hair, the touch of their hands when I’m feeling worn down. They are worth this.
  • Learning humility
  • Not fighting back, even when I want to.
  • Stryder almost strong enough to sit up on his own. How did this happen already??

  • Blown away by an amazing conference
  • Thank you, ladies.
  • Nuggets of truth carried home in my heart
  • Putting them into action. Trying.
  • Never doing this on my own. He is all, and in all.
