Summer 2013: August 5th

Life is Beautiful and Stinky

It stinks that my days are so busy.
Yet, I appreciate that the kids want to be with me.

It stinks that their activities are so overwhelming.
Yet, the beauty of their smiles makes it worth the effort.

It stinks that this season of life is so selfless.
Yet, I would want to give my heart and soul to no other.

Life is hard right now.
Kids are demanding.
Husbands are challenging.
Yet, I love having them each in my life.
Amidst the chaos, screaming, crying, fighting, there is always beauty.
Even when it is a beautifully stinky creature in the backyard.
