So thankful

Sometimes I have these moments where so many feelings of thankfulness and awe rise up in me and I cry–or almost cry–at the blessing of it all. In so many ways, life is not what I had dreamed it would be. And in so many ways, it is so much more than I could have envisioned.

I am so grateful for my amazing blessings–two in particular in this moment. I am married to a great guy is who is a fun and playful daddy and a wise, tender and patient husband. And I have a beautiful and feisty little girl who is 5 going on 15. She is so sweet and good natured (most of the time). I love her zest for life and desire for adventure. And I love when she peacefully and soundly sleeps.

Thank you Jesus for these incredible bright spots in my world, and the ever-growing thankfulness in my heart.

Summer Fun Take 1

We are enjoying some lovely summer fun already.  We were excited for our recent visit with Mimi and Boppa.  We LOVE it when they come!  And shortly before that we visited some cousins and had a short visit with Grandma and Grandpa.  We love to have people visit us!  And we love visit those we love (and miss)!

Here are just a couple pictures from our fun times.  First, K with Mimi and Boppa on the train–one of her  FAVORITE things to do!


And some fun with cousins and Grandma and Grandpa and friends from our past life.

And we already got to enjoy some VBS fun this past month.  I think there are at least two more we get to enjoy.  🙂

And another ride!

It definitely isn’t taking long for her to get the hang of it.
