The last week has been fabulous, full, and fun. Now of course, as with any family with kids, you've gotta have some sickies, some meltdowns, and some moments when you want to join them and pitch a fit when things don't go your way.
All in all, we crammed in some goodness along with the practical demands.
Well 5 years and 3 girls later, I remembered that little encounter with myself, and we hushed the productive whispers of need-to's and must-do's, and we frolicked into the cafe for lunch.
Throw away tupperware. I like them because I can fill 'em up with grub and toss them to a baby and there's no spills.
That's all I needed and since I was commandeering the vehicle, we stopped.
And the mama, missing her daddy a lot lately, ordered in his honor. Blackberry.
I did what I was told. And it was awesome.
We are learning to navigate in this season of change. Learning His peace doesn't come from an end result or having a constant home. We are learning to process with little hearts the questions and pleas for our home, her bed, their toys. The Lord is teaching us, revealing treasures to our hearts. Lessons to be learned and gratitude to take in.
A constant thing, steady and never changing, we love being together. We're a family wherever that may be. Everything else is just the icing on top.
The sundae served up from the Father of sweetness and fulfillment. Just us.
