Don't you just love it when amidst life's crazy times you just have a moment to feel perfectly content and at peace?
Life has been crazy the past couple months - wedding plans, buying a car, getting the puppy spayed, babies being born, showers, a wedding and visiting friends and family. It seems I have been on the go for quite a while.
But yesterday, Nate and I both had a night off. We decided to take a walk at a local park we haven't been to and mosied along a trail by the water. Novie got a little wet and obviously had a good time, and she also discovered sand on the playground - which she wanted to eat. It was really funny.
When we were walking back to the car, a flood of thankfulness spread over me.
"I love our family," I told Nate.
We have a small family emerging, just the two of us and our dog. However, to me, it's absolutely perfect. We have a strong love and all the little things we need.
Even today, that aura of perfect contentedness has stayed with me. I have plenty to do, but I have Nate, and I don't need anything else.
Make sure to take some time for yourself. In my opinion, life has to be slow enough for you to appreciate it and all that it offers.
