just sitting here...

Since replacing Ripped in 30 with trying to recover I've been spending lots of time here...

Looking at the fresh flowers Caleb keeps bringing me...and smelling my wonderful candle.


I want to use me time wisely, not focusing on the things I can't do, but the things I can...
like, catching up on my reading list,
and writing letters.

Spending more time studying God's word and praying for my friends and family. I'm constantly trying to take my thoughts captive, replacing fear with trust and frustration with gratefulness. 

And I'm seriously loving all the cuddle time.
  I hear Elijah open the front door from being at the park with Caleb saying, "I need my mommy." Then he crawls into bed with me and tells me how much fun he had at the park. 

V just stretches out her arms reaching for me and gives me the biggest smile. love.it!

Hang in there, Jessica! I promise that you will look back on this time as being precious. You will treasure the kindness of your husband, and the sweet cuddles with your kids. Not only that, but I trust the Lord is deepening your relationship with Him and strengthening your faith. That, my friend, is even more precious than memories!

Bless your heart! It is so hard to be down with little kids, I will pray you are over this mono soon. Love that you are prioritizing your down time. We would all be better served to do that!
