life is beautiful

How often do you step back and decide how you feel about your life?

I think that I spend a lot of time tweaking my life, knit-picking things I want to improve. Without realizing it, I have not assessed my life, the life of our little family, to decide if I like it or not.

This weekend, Joel, the kids, my mom and I were attending the Clear Lake Down Syndrome support group‘s spring picnic @ Challenger 7 park. We bumped into my ex-boyfriend, Gabe, swinging his 3-yr old daughter just a few swings over from my Bella.
I haven’t seen Gabe since 4-weeks after starting to date Joel. I saw him on the road, and we said hello. That was 8 yrs ago.

What I realized standing there, surrounded by my little troupe and his’, is that my life is beautiful.

  • I am so proud of my husband, that he’s a churchplanter, a pastor, an entreprenuir, and a great dad.
  • My kids are so stinking cute and awesome.
  • God has assembled my dream life, and I love it!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
