There is a kind of peace that flows when you grow fully and beautifully. I am finding that peace for myself with each passing day.
It’s in the morning sun, the one that peaks through my window right before 6 am to let me know a new day has begun.
It’s in the steps I take to my quiet space for me, where I nestle in between sheets and warm fuzzy blankets to do all that matters for me.
It with morning runs, with the love of my life, my Zobam, on days when our legs feel ready to run miles we wish to never end.
It’s in the children that come into my room everyone, with words like Good morning that allow me to know that everything good will come our way.
It’s in the chaos and hustle of a busy day, one filled with toothbrushes that curve like the letter U for my boys, decisions around showers or bath and which bathroom, my own or theirs.
Its in the light breakfast we all eat every morning. Nothing heavy just eggs with all sorts of fruits, black berries, blue berries, raspberries, strawberries and anything berries will do.
It’s in the drive somewhere, every morning, with my kids somewhere. School, summer camp, Drace Park and the endless walks and runs around green beds of grass with kids 10 and below.
It’s in the quiet time I steal for myself, every morning, right before work, just for me, to do and be me.
It’s for the times at the store during the way, endless strolls along aisles, full of things we don’t need.
It’s in the afternoon runs with my kids, pick up and drops offs somewhere all in the name of raising children that are critical about life.
It’s in the times we spend together, most evenings making dinner, that fills our heart and home with joy.
It’s in the times I get to spend with them again, movie nights, reading books, anything that little kids love these days.
My peace may flow around them, as it should, when they bring so much joy and heaven in a world full of chaos.
I am loving all the ways I am growing these days. Images like this from Renike remind me of why it’s important to spend time listing all that makes your grow fully and beautifully.
I wrote this in three minutes because above all, words make me full and beautiful.
