In these days of finding rocks in my coat pocket, goldfish cracker trails on the floor, and toys in my purse, I am learning to be grateful for things I've never noticed before.
In these days of a toddler taking very short naps, of cooking attempts gone awry, and little hands pulling on my jeans for more attention, I'm learning that I have never really been in control.
In these days of to-do lists that are filled with many more items to-do than items already done, I'm learning that a meaningful life has nothing to do with accomplishments.
In these days of catching up over texts and distraction-filled playdates, I'm learning that friendships have seasons, and that's ok.
In these days of sippy cups, "UP, mama!", and stacking blocks for the 100th time, I'm learning that ever person is incredibly valuable, no matter how much they can do for me.
In these days of once-a-month date nights and quick kisses before work, I'm learning that commitment and believing in each other makes marriage go a long way.
In these days of interrupted prayers, quick flips through my Bible, and podcasts paused but rarely re-started, I'm learning that performance has no place in my relationship with Christ. I'm learning that He is for me, that His presence doesn't depend on my faithfulness, and that He just really, really loves.
What are you learning from the season you're in?
