"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, through prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." -Philippians 4:6-7
15 | 365 Today I woke up feeling stressed and anxious. I was focusing on the millions of small tasks I need to complete... as a wife, a stay-at-home mom, a business owner... these things, although all so minor individually, felt like they were all stacking up on me today to a level I couldn't handle.
I looked up from my haze of worry to see my toddler... wearing nothing but a diaper, relaxing on what is supposed to be the backrest of the chair, soaking in the sunlight from the only window letting it shine into the house at that time of day, putting together puzzles on the tablet he got for Christmas.
Not a care in the world.
I love how children remind you of what is really important in life. All that other stuff that we stress about won't matter some day, but these moments will. I thank God every day for giving me two beautiful children to help this worry-prone mommy remember to slow down and find beauty in the small things.
Life is beautiful if you just let it be.
16 | 365 Just when I thought there was nothing interesting to photograph today...
17 | 365 "Mom, the lights!" ... he adjusts them ... "CHEESE!" he says with a big grin ... he pauses and waits for me to take his picture.
18 | 365 I think it's safe to say that he had a good time at his first birthday party.
My little monster.
19 | 365 Goofball. That is all.
20 | 365 Today is my baby's first birthday. We celebrated with pancakes for breakfast. He approved.
