At this point you all probably know that I think about time a lot. I think about how quickly time passes by. I think about how quickly my babies are growing older, and I don’t like it. LOL But who does?
By this point I had to rush to get ready for mass, but I made it there. Many thanks to my mom for sitting with the boys so that I could go to mass. They didn’t wake up until around 9, and she helped me get them ready so we could leave the house. We spent the day with our family in Woodlawn, which is about an hour and half from our home. I drove there and back, and on the way back I started thinking about how nice it would be to lay my exhausted body down for a long nap when I got home. I laughed to myself, because I knew that wasn’t going to happen. And I couldn’t help but think about how I took my nap time for granted when I was a single lady. Ha! I feel like there’s a whole lot that I took for granted when I was living my single life.
Lord, help us to not take for granted the season we are in right now. Help us to be present in each moment by being grateful for the many, many blessings you have given us. And help us to remember that we are doing your work, especially when the work is hard. Amen.
