Just life...

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a few days.  I had a few transcription files to work on over the weekend, so that's kept me busy, and we also made an impromptu visit to Chatham to see my parents after Tim got home on Saturday afternoon.  I don't think he's been back there since Christmas, so it was a good visit.  The kids always love going to see Grandpa and Grandma.  :)

Life continues on.  Kaylee speaks more and more every day and continues to come out with words we had no idea she knew.  Reuben is, as always, full of energy and seems to be constantly fighting a cough because he just doesn't slow down enough to ever get all the way better.  Tim's work as a driver is the same as always, and we're looking forward to having him around for a few days till he goes back out on the road again after his schedule being weird for the holiday weekend.  We celebrated our sixth anniversary this weekend by going out to dinner while the kids were with my parents, and it was a wonderful evening of looking back and seeing how far we've come.  As I said on Facebook, still young, still in love... (although with two kids, sometimes it's hard to feel so young...)

And I am doing all right, too.  I've had some good days lately with the kids, being able to enjoy them for who they are and taking pleasure in watching the great joy they get out of life.  And then these are usually followed by extremely challenging days where I spend the entire day praying for patience and struggling not to snap at them for every little thing.  It's the life of a mother I think, and I am ever thankful that I have the Lord to rely on for strength.  He never fails to get me through.

"My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever." Psalm 73:26

Marleah, I can so relate to your comment about enjoying your kids for the way that they face life and the excitement they receive from the small things in it. And then wham the next day they are driving you nuts and you feel like all you do is snap at them. Life is a wave with ups and downs and your along for the ride. I thinks it's amazing that the kids will most loke forget any of the rough spots but hold on to all the memories of the good :)
