Back from a wonderful long weekend in Moab! It was wonderful to get away to warmer weather for a while. And the food… oh the food! There is not a shortage of amazing places to eat there! I most definently gained a few pounds! But the most wonderful part of going to Moab? Being able to sit back and enjoy life. To slow down. I watched my girls see their first caterpillars- they were so thrilled. We played at the park and blew bubbles. It was a wonderful weekend to sit back and think about my role as a mother. I think it all started with this video from the amazing Stephanie Nielson, of NieNie Dialouges. It was a beautiful reminder that life is so fragile and precious. A reminder to me, to make every day count. To make sure my children know that I love them, that I care about them, that I want to hear their fears, hopes and dreams. I loved how Stephanie described her role of a mother as divine. It really and truly is. And I am grateful to be a mother.
(I took these with my broken lens, and they are far from perfect… but they make me so happy.)
