grateful

grateful.  i’m so grateful that He does not give up on me and that His love {no matter however much mine does fail} NEVER fails. SO grateful.  and here’s a few more things from this past week that warm my soul… 

psalms 107: 1, 2a, 8-9, 16

“give thanks to the Lord, for He is good:
   His love endures forever.
let the redeemed of the Lord say this —

…let them give thanks to the Lord for His
   unfailing love
and His wonderful deeds for men,
   for He satisfies the thirsty
and  fills the hungry with good things.

…for He breaks down gates of bronze
    and cuts through bars of iron.”

loved the chance to hike in these mountains {crystal lakes trail near breckenridge}.

just abbey and i… 
and the chance to spend some alone time
with God and His creation. loved.

we had a great last few nights in breck…
enjoying some good food, walking the streets of the town at dusk
with the streets aglow and the mountains looking down on us. 

little M wondering running freely {with parents chasing in tow} down main street

i’ve wrestled with this… but think i’ve resigned to the fact that
sometimes a movie diversion {aka pacifier}
is not always a bad thing

… little M and his bridge and the water underneath, fun times!

treasuring these sweet moments… 
that i actually get to collect rocks for this boy, my boy
to throw in the water. just being a mother
catches me off guard sometimes, and my
heart skips a beat. i’m this little boy’s mommy.
grateful.

what would i do without these boys in my life! 
{besides the obvious of having more time to myself…} 
but who needs that?! really…
i wouldn’t trade any of it — the chaos, the cooking, 
cleaning {will i ever get a break from mopping the floor!!},
dirty laundry… just general boy”ness”.

and saying “goodbye” to the many sweet memories
we had in colorado.
a restful, rejuvenating and new beginnings kind of time.
so grateful for this gift.
