We went to visit my MIL in VA this past weekend. My SIL came also with her little boy, Colton. It was her birthday on Sunday so we got to celebrate together. We had a fun time. The girls love to go there and Danny was enthralled with Mr. Buddy's kitties. I think these were the first animals Daniel has been around and he was so excited. He even makes a special sound for the kitties - it kind of resembles a hiss - hmmm, wonder where he got that from? :) We were able to go to the beach. The girls insisted on wearing their swimsuits and wading in the water. At first Daniel didn't like the sand at all, but after a few minutes, he was walking all over the beach and having a great time.
I'm trying to find the right balance in life. I'm attempting to be a great mom, wife, daughter, Christian, friend, teacher, and homemaker. Some days are better than others. I'm learning it's ok to not be perfect. I'm learning to be content in all circumstances. I'm learning to take better care of myself so I can take better care of my family. I'm learning to enjoy the little moments in life instead of always focusing on what's ahead. I'm learning to embrace the now.
