Sweet Days

This thankful stuff is getting hard! I know I have tons to be thankful for, but it's hard to think of another way to put it that is not totally boring after eighteen days. But I think today I'll be thankful for being in the fun, crazy, exhausting phase of life that I'm in. The two little guys and I went on a playdate today with our good friends Kerrie and Katherine, and as we pulled into the playing location, I was sad at the thought of the day when I won't have any little guys to take on playdates anymore.

Being a mommy to four little kids can be trying at times, to say the least, but I know I'll look back and know these were some of the best days of our lives. We're always eager to move onto the next phase of life. You know when you're nine, you can't wait to be sixteen so you can drive. And when you're sixteen, you can't wait to graduate and go to college. And when you're in college, you can't wait to get married and "play house." And after you're married a little while, you can't wait to have a sweet baby. Well, now I can wait. I'm just so happy to be 30-something with a sweet husband, a cozy house, a busy schedule, and four wonderful children. But life's not waiting on me. It's flying by, but I'm going to try and hang onto these sweet days for as long as I can.

(I'm also thankful for someone stepping in and doing quite a nice little job on yesterday's post. Told you I had a sweet husband.)


  1. This last week just plain stunk at my house. But you are so right Amy, it all goes away too fast and we need to be thankful for the stage we are in right now.
