Sometimes it catches me off guard....

and takes my breath away. Grief is a strange thing.

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.


  1. Beautiful children! May God lift the burden on your heavy heart! :)

  2. Our little ones definitely remind us that life goes on and to take joy in the good things in life. Don't be too hard on yourself, we all go through this. Believe me, I had some major grouchy days 2 yrs ago. It sneaks up on you. But it's ok for your kids to see that. {{hugs}}


I'm so glad you decided to leave me a comment today! Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the world. :)
