I love my life. I really do. It's what I always wanted and every once in awhile I have to stop and pinch myself! What more could I want? (Well, a few things... but I wont go there!) Seriously, Trav is about as great as it gets, we have a van full of crazy monkeys we always wanted, the house is full and loud and we have the gospel in our lives. We live in a free counrty, we have running cars, we have food, friends, family near by, healthy kids, good schools a dishwasher, a vacuume, a washer & dryer- we are good! I've just been overwhelmed lately with my life and how the Lord has blessed us. We struggle everyday in a hundred ways, but even in those crazy, dark or unsure moments, I look around and see just how much I do have. It's easy to point out what we lack- Sure, a bigger house would rock because we have maxed this one out, a job that payed more would be super awesome, and a bunch of other things- but pretty often lately, I have thanked the Lord for the mound of dirty dishes in my sink, the puddles of water on the bathroom floor after bath time, the toys all over the house, the never ending laundry and trying to remember everyone's schedules- it means we are doing a few things right. Today I feel blessed to have the messes and a bunch of kids- it's what I've always wanted.
