Okay, so I have been claiming over and over to my family that we do not need to update our blog because I have accepted the fact that we are not that exciting. I am not ashamed of that. Rather, I feel blessed to be coasting right now. Sure, we have a lot going on, but all in all we have a great life.
We found out today that a friend was put on hospice care at home and is living out his final days saying goodbye to his amazing family- his wife and 2 sons. How lucky we are to not be dealing with a tragedy? I pray that I can remember that in the sweet, boring moments at home watching tv, making dinner, working out*, getting up early when I don't want to, etc. I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to do those fun everyday things.
So, even though we don't have any beautiful children (yet) to post pictures of in big bows or sweet button-down shirts, aren't taking any trips around the world, and aren't finding a cure for cancer, we have a great life! We each contribute in our own ways- to the things God has entrusted to us. I have a husband who loves me and a sweet puppy dog... who loves his daddy more. Life is good!
* Side note- Although this is in the "plan" everyday, it is a minor miracle when we actually have time to do it. We started P90X recently and LOVE it! It kicks our butts, but, truthfully, they need to be kicked! There is a guy on the video that is in amazing shape and he has a prosthetic leg. How cheap is that!?! You just can't quit when the guy with one leg is doing it!
