Kalyn has not turned Hindu....she was simply a mama desperate for some sticker entertainment in flight with a 20 month old! Ahhhhhhhh.....traveling as Grammy has neat perks. I am assuming someone else calculated the snacks, the diaper and the toy count. I just get to take pictures and watch her discover the airplane lights.
This week I have been particularly alerted to the wonder of the seasons of life. As surely as spring beings its annual transformations without my assistance, the seasons of my family's life keep rolling along whether I want them to or not. As a younger mom, I would often look ahead wanting to rush myself forward to the next plateau or development. Now, I want to slow everyone down! But in reality, I don't have the luxury of either option. For God, himself, is the orchestrator of seasons.
So my next best option? Enjoy.....I mean really enjoy....the season we are in. Take time to laugh at their silly jokes and remember the corny movie line with them. That is my family fun advice for this week. Simple. And yet profound.
Oh, I know we are all busy keeping our lives running and achieving and earning. But the best are the moments when you catch a glimpse afresh at why you are running, achieving, and earning anyway.
P.S. .....We made it a whole week with keeping our house in greater order! I think we are on to something this time! Read about our Messy House Weirdness HERE.
