There are many moments in my days where I breath out hard and heavy and just pray to God to give me patience, energy, and a loving heart to continue on through all of the hundreds of small details that make up both a mom's day and a small business owner's day. But remembering all of the beautiful moments that make up our days helps me to keep perspective and to remember that there is so much joy and so much love that does go on each day despite my shortcomings.
With Abraham and Emmy needing a change of pace and with myself trying to do too many things at once, we all needed a change of pace the other morning. I grabbed a basket, some graham crackers, a jug of water, some knitting and a blanket and said, "Let's go have a morning picnic snack on the other side of the pond." We found some berries along the way.
Abby, Isaac and friends working on building a dock.
I smile whenever I find one of Abe's drawings.
She is now walking as she pushes the stroller!
The first canning of the season was completed this week - Carrots in Honey and Vinegar, Pungent Green Beans, and Pickles.
Sarah and Abraham love pickles and made quick work of finishing up the ones that were leftover after filling up the jars.
Sarah is now reading and we are having a hard time getting her to stop! It has taken some patience, some diligence, and some faith that all of her small steps towards breaking the code would finally be victorious.
Wishing you a beautiful day.
