Life is Beautiful

As my kids were playing outside today, I was able to capture this wonderful picture of a butterfly. It really made me think how beautiful life is and how sometimes I forget to count my blessings. I have a wonderful husband and two healthy little boys. My family is my life and God has blessed me with so much in my life. I need to learn to step back from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life and just thank Him for all that he provides for my family. I often get tied up in thinking all of the things I have to get done today. When really a quiet day spent playing in the backyard is all my family needs.

I need to constantly remind myself to slow down and enjoy life. Kids grow up way to fast. I cannot believe I have a 4 ½ year old and a 19 month old and have been married to my husband for almost 8 years now. Where does the time go? It seems like time just goes faster and faster once you have kids. I want to cherish every moment I have with them. I often get caught up in making sure that we constantly have “fun” activities planned for them and that they get to experience all that life as to offer. But really in the end they are just as happy swinging and playing tag in our backyard!
