His Grace

As I sip my freshly brewed cup of Maxwell House (that I bought on sale) and listen to Liberate Me by Rachel Sauls, I know that I am Blessed. I am Blessed to be given one more day on this beautiful Earth and one more day to spend with the two loves of my life.

This day has been electrifying (to say the least). Words cannot express what I feel. Exactly where I am is exactly where I want to be.

I spent this glorious day with treasured family. We celebrated our dear son's third birthday. The celebration of his birthday has been an emotional experience for me. I'm trying to keep this is mind:

Don't be afraid of change because it is always necessary for progress. --- Joyce Meyer

Although I usually (usually, not always) embrace change with open arms, it is quite difficult for me to embrace that my baby is growing up. As I stop to reflect on the years that Owen has been in our life to mold us into the parents we are, I am pleased. He is proof of who we were are as people, as individuals.

I know I will be that Mommy; you know, the one outside the pre-k door holding her box of Kleenex, fogging up the window with tears, when it's time for Owen to start school. One thing I know:

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me --- Philippians 4:13
