I finally took a day off today!! I needed it. We had a weekend packed with soccer, a basketball tournament, 1st communion parties and summer camp training.
Today though I was flooded with emotion of how quickly time moves. The day started with Ty so excited to tell me he had lost another tooth. Just getting a moment to breathe and see how big my own children have grown right before my very eyes was overwhelming. Then this evening I went to see my grandfather in the hospital. He’s no longer the strong figure I remember, as I watched him struggle to breathe. Again it was overwhelming to see how fragile life is.
I haven’t had many days were I can even gain clear perspective because life is just that fast. Tonight I go to bed with the knowledge that life is good, fragile, and challenging. But through it all God loves us, and that is overwhelming!
