I'm trying to enjoy this beautiful weather. I'm trying to enjoy my kids right now.
There's the constant reminder of how fleeting life can be, but the other side of the same coin is the complete inadequacy I feel right now as a parent.
It's hard to grieve when four little people constantly need you.
I long to show grace to them but instead feel like I'm just showing them how human I am right now. And I know that's not a bad thing. I just wished my humanity had less grouchiness and irritability.
My hope is that they can see grace in my frailty. I want my sorrow to point them to Jesus rather than weigh them down with brokeness.
I'm thankful for hope. And these sweet little faces reminding me that life continues.
