i am staring out the window at my kids, they are playing with worms. i love them (my kids, not the worms).
last night we were discussing our day, what we were thankful for. Michael said he was thankful for the for a rainbow he had seen earlier in the day, and for the beautiful sunset God gave him as he traveled home from work. i began to pout, for just a moment, to God about how i had missed those things because i was stuck indoors all day with the kids. God prompted me to ask Him what my rainbow and sunset was on this day. seeing clearly i added to the conversation, i am "thankful for the rainbow i saw, when emilie wrapped her arms around noah, comforting him when he got hurt. And, my sunset , came in josie's sweet expressions, her big smile, her "r" less words, as i soak up her 5-ness (she will 6 at the end of the week).
sometimes. i just miss it.
sometimes i envy everyone else's adventures so much that i miss my own.
this is my adventure.
