Its been one of those weeks. Weeks that you just ‘make it’.
Yea. Pretty much just makin’ it by this week. Hence my lack of blogging this week. My lack of social media period, actually.
All this started last weekend with fevers and snotty noses. Less than stellar appetites warranted multiple offerings at meal times to get them to eat anything. ANYthing.
Work this week was hectic. High strung would be an understatement.
Wednesday. WEDNESDAY. Crying from the moment they woke up to the moment they went to bed. Parker ate nothing at all. MAYbe a couple sips of milk. Jolie didn’t do much better. Nothing would soothe them. Nothing.
And then.. the calm. My sweet Jesus reminded me of why I do what I do. My job, my purpose, my role as Parker and Jolie’s mother.
Yesterday afternoon we spent the evening out in the backyard- just me an the girls. Daddy was at the firestation, and I was fearful of what I was coming home to after the crazy week we had been having.
In those moments we spent enjoying the weather I saw the pure joy in my baby girls’ hearts.
They were calm. They were the happy babies I know.
There wasn’t a place in the world that I would have rather been.
After getting them up from nap the girls spotted the new package of head wraps we got in the mail the day before and insisted they be put on their head. Total clash, but they pulled it off well if you ask me.
My sweet girl. Those baby blues are breathtaking.
Our neighbors were playing on their trampoline and Jolie was super enthused and telling me all about them. When that little voice turns that babble into sentences I won’t know what to do with myself.
Watercolor.. obsessed with this app.
..and this one. Obsessing about Daphnee. Daaaaaa! (dog)
I dare you to blink first.
Our #OOTD. I hope no one is taking notes on this fashion sense.
God is good at reminding me of the calm that is to come when I feel like I can’t handle one more stress, emotion, cry, or responsibility.
..and what a beautiful reminder He provided.
“No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.” (1 Cor. 10:13)
