Thankful

I was going to write a post this morning about being anxious.  I've actually spent large chunks of the last several months battling anxiety, over my kids' futures, but I can't quite express the nuances of what I'm going through with the written word.  Maybe other moms out there can relate...

That's okay though, because this morning, I'm just feeling thankful.  Monday nights are "family night" around here, meaning that Evan and Erin come over for dinner and hang with the rest of the family for the evening.  They decided before they were married that they would visit once a week.  This decision made me a very happy mama!

What a joy to just spend time together as a family laughing and talking.  Seeing Evan and Erin is actually very therapeutic, as it is a visual reminder to me that God will, indeed, take care of my children even after they reach adulthood.  Also, the genuine love that my older children have for each other makes my heart just sing! My girls are blessed to have a big brother who loves them fiercely.

Okay, that's enough of this mushy-mom post.  Back to the trenches I go, more peaceful and less anxious.
