Little moments in the New Year

I won’t lie. The big picture of life right now can seem overwhelming. So, I’ve decided to dwell on the sweet little moments that God allows me to have. It allows me to live more in the moment and less in the anxiety. Here are a few so far in 2014…

Each night we’ve been having “dance pawtees” in the kitchen while I fix supper. It’s so fun and it reminds me to let loose a bit and enjoy my boys instead of worrying about what the night will entail.

We set off a lantern New Year’s Eve with our friends and as I stood there making a wish (please let Bennett Rippy start napping better), I was captivated by how amazed Bud was. He just wanted to chase it around and as it got too far he kept saying, “But I want to hold it!”….. It made me change my wish. I wish that he will always to want to hold that kind of light in his hands and chase it with his whole heart.


Even though the cries are hard, the smiles are brilliant.


And even though its cold and gray and rainy, me AND my kids need to be outside. So every time we bundle and come in with rosy cheeks and runny noses, I know it’s worth it that we got to play in the dirt.

Happy 2014, I hope that your year consists of joy-filled little moments and gratitude in the storm.
