S🌻nday is our best day. because we do our very best to just slow down and be. be present and mindful and happy and still. we're not perfect at it, but trying. and trying counts in my book! 🌻
there's been an ache in my chest all summer long, almost a feeling of panic at how fast time is flying by...how few years i have left with all 5 of these faces under my wing. it feels like yesterday i was counting down the hours 'til john would get home from work and give me an ounce of relief from motherhood duties....and now, i'm counting down the summers i have left with everyone home and it's got me feeling all sorts of things. if you're changing diapers on repeat and getting zero sleep, hang in there and know that yes, the days are long and often times so stinkin hard, but the years are short and completely priceless.
