On any Wednesday afternoon, I am easily found. Just find Henry and you’ll find me. Like two old souls, we’re usually watching a biographical documentary together on the couch. Today we learned about Usain Bolt and his remarkable feats. There are no snacks. No phones. No tablets. Nothing to distract from this togetherness. We rush to find each other as soon as the youngest are tucked in for naps.
I don’t have afternoon MoveMore groups on Wednesday. I can give him my full attention. We both need it. Crave it.
As we sit in silence, I am reminded of the blessing. Staying home. When I’m old and have no retirement plan or pension or savings to speak of, I will have no regret. To sacrifice my career, the nicer car, the vacations for their betterment, their security, their comfort….that is a gift that I will gladly give.
The gift of TIME.
There is no replacement.
This life – It’s nothing like how I thought it’d look and it’s everything I’ve ever wanted.

Side note – I found some PUMPKIN SPICE Frosted Mini Wheats at Target!! I’ve yet to open them (we have like 5 boxes of cereal open right now […]
Catchy title, eh? (I flunked the “Finding The Right Title” course in blogging school.) I’m sitting here on Thursday morning with a couple of free minutes (Porter just went down for his morning nap, Henry is reading in the front room and Clara is beside me working on her math assignment. She just looked at […]
Happy Wednesday! As I sit down to type, it’s POURING rain outside. I love it. I don’t necessarily love rain but I crave a good rainy day every so often. Three or four rainy days in a row…no thanks. We actually need the rain – the leaves are changing a bit too early because it’s […]
Good morning, friends! I’m not sure about you but we had an absolutely fabulous weekend. The biggest highlight –> celebrating Travis’ 33rd birthday yesterday! That guy is greatly loved around here so we tried to make it as special as possible (even though he’s not really “into” birthday celebrations). That being said, here are 16 […]
