I forgot to hit publish on this one over a month ago!
I’m savoring sweet sweet Sundays with my girls. ❤ Since the sewing machine was still out from last week when my 11yr old son begged to stitch up his favorite sweatpants -bless his frugal heart-, we bought some fabric and started on birthday + Christmas gifts. I thought my plate was too full and I couldn’t take on even an hour of this, but as it turns out, this is just what I needed to feel refreshed. It also helps that I did 8 loads of laundry and cleaned the kitchen and floors this morning. Once the momentum starts, it doesn’t stop quickly.
My 32-year old hands love to create and my wandering heart is so happy each time I get another craft-like project started. Lately, I’ve been too busy for creating and it has sucked the joy right out of my journey. No more of that! <- I said out loud. I have to learn to prioritize what matters, and moments like these with my children matter a whole lot.
There’s just something about your oldest child getting a driver’s license that just makes you realize how short a childhood really is.
Moms + Dads, don’t waste it, don’t wish it away. Savor it all. ❤ Do the messy stuff, do the things that take a long time, and do the things they ask to do over and over before they stop asking at all.
If only I could go back in time, I think I’d live a few years of my life in a much different way and with greater persistence. Nevertheless, I’m here, and it’s here and now that I’m listening and creating.
