Be In Love With Your Life

by tinareale on February 28, 2013

I came across this little piece of art work the other day on a Target run. As I shuffled through my errands I almost whizzed past it without a second glance. I had both kids and was just in a rush to get in and out.  Makenzie was going on about wanting a Hello Kitty item she eyed a mile away and Braedon was, well, being Braedon. Trying to maneuver his way out of the seat every time I slightly turned my back.

I actually stopped a sudden, full stop just slightly past it. Then, I backed up, paused, and reflected.

I love my life. It has its moments, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I looked at my kids, smiled, then kissed them both and told them thank you. Braedon promptly pushed me away (such a boy!) and Makenzie asked why I said “thank you”. I told her for being in my life and making me smile. She, of course, immediately asked if that meant she could get the Hello Kitty stuff. I laughed and then strolled away to the cash register. In love with my life.

Be in love with your life. Tell me how you’re feeling that right now.

This is great! I’m going to make it my phone background. It’s hard to sometimes remember, but I do have a fantastic life and I do love it! It’s always great to see reminders :)

That’s words remind us to use our live carefully. Because many of us never care with their self. They turn to be bad guys and never care others lives. So sad to look people like that.

There are definitely moments when it’s reeeeaaaly hard for me to embrace this season of my life with all the craziness of having young children, but I do, absolutely love my life. Even in those moments, I am so grateful. Happy Friday, Tina! :)

I am totally in love with my life! God has blessed me far beyond what I could have ever hoped or prayed for, and I am so undeserving. I thank Him every day and remind myself to not take it for granted.
