right now life is
~ broken sleep and sweet baby-sighs as Serenity finally slumbers beside me
~ half-awake milky smiles after time nursing... one of my favorite things!
~ binge-watching Netflix while feeding Rennie
~ trying to keep the house clean
~ hot coffee and snuggles in the morning
~ listening to music (mostly Casting Crowns' hymn album or classical)
~ smelling like stale milk and hence:
~ getting a shower whenever I possibly can
~ trimming tiny baby fingernails... they are sharp!
~ diapers... lots of diapers ;-)
~ playing music/singing with the hubby
~ making Thanksgiving plans
~ phone talks with my far-away family
~ seeing snow on the mountains and wishing for some whiteness here
~ reading little stories with my Renniebird and watching her smile when I sing!
~ falling in love more and more...
with my simple, little life.
It isn't easy... tight budgets, parenting, being a wife, being far from loved ones, being alone so much... but God has proven over and over His eternal faithfulness. I may not know the plans He has, but He does... and they are marvelous and He is helping me to find joy in the waiting. Even when I can't trust my own heart, I can trust His as it overflows with grace and love for me and my tiny family.
Sometimes that trust is all you have.
And it is enough.
