These past couple of weeks have felt like a whirlwind…
…Getting ready to leave my family to go to Guatemala. Planning and preparing and putting everything into place for while I am away, so that my family is looked after and my absence is as easy on them as possible. Pulling together resources and materials for the programs we will be running in Guatemala. Celebrating with loved ones the upcoming 2nd birthday of my firstborn son (more about this to follow in another post!!). Jumping through all of the pre-surgery hoops (consultation with the surgeon, CT scan, MRI, etc…) for my upcoming wrist surgery. And on top of all of this extra stuff, being a mom, hanging out with my two kiddos, and fulfilling the responsibilities of daily life. Phew!!
But yesterday, Mother’s Day, felt like the eye of the storm. The place of calm in the midst of chaos. I chose to put everything else on hold, and just be. Be the mother my children deserve. Be the wife I have been too busy to be lately. Be loved. It was glorious:)
We went to the park and attempted to take some pics. Enjoy:) (and sorry about the double chin…mine that is!)
