Slow Down!

Slow Down! Take a deep breath! Enjoy the fresh fall breezes!
This morning Caleb decided to go back to sleep after getting up to eat at 7am...I got to sit on the back porch, drink my coffee and read, enjoying the 70 degree morning and the beautiful sunrise God painted for me. I was thinking about we rush around so much! ( I am SO guilty of this!) GO GO GO! Get up, start laundry, iron, feed caleb, do dishes, run errands, fix lunch, fix dinner, get everyone ready for bed etc...I feel like the past week I have barely caught by breath, between being out of town working 2 full 12+ hour days, and trying to do everything else! I haven't enjoyed my husband, my son, and I've missed a multitude of little blessings God has wanted to share with me! So this week I am going to try to just slow down and enjoy each and every moment! Life is short...my time with my loved ones is not guaranteed! I will hug my baby boy when he wakes and enjoy the fact that I can hear him cry (he is teething and yesterday was rough!). There are so many moms who don't get to hear their babies cry...(NICU moms!) I will enjoy my few moments each day with my wonderful husband! Instead of giving him Caleb as soon as he gets home and then running around trying to do things I can't do all day with Caleb, I will just sit and be with him. Those things can wait...If there are few dirty dishes in the sink we will all live...
Lord, thank you for these refreshing fall breezes! And all the many blessings I enjoy! Help me to see you in everything, all day! Help me to look for you everywhere!
