It's a wild day of travel but I can't let it pass without telling you about the podcast today! @sally.clarkson and I talk all about what it means "to welcome the stranger" and what lies at the heart of hospitality. And then one of our besties @chrystalhurst joins us to talk about her new book and how she's training a house full of boys how to welcome others into their home. And my favorite thing? THE most beautiful hospitality guide over at sallyclarkson.com is waiting for you! #momheart #podcast

My little heartbreaker. •


But for real, sometimes being a mom breaks your heart. S/O to all the moms just doing your best to raise these little humans. It's easy to feel inadequate with such a huge task. The tears dry and broken bones heal. Eventually, I hear, they grow up. We won't get these days back! ❤️ #brokenarm #momheart

Good morning my friends. I fear this may be a long post. I'm only a little sorry 😀 Welcome to a bit more of our story. **********************************
Today is one of those days. A day that started me on my journey towards finding every day lovely and redefined what that looks like. An anniversary of sorts that you kind of wish wasn't your story but couldn't imagine any other way. You see, 2 yrs ago today we handed our sweet son Caedmon over to the surgeons at Boston Children's Hospital for his bilateral amputation surgery .
.
Sitting there in that waiting room, surrounded by dear ones, I couldn't help but feel like I was looking at them thru a hazy tunnel. My mind so far away, was aching to hold my sweet, chubby almost 8 month old. Shield him from this world. It's one of those things, that leaves an imprint on your soul and you are forever different. We all have seasons like that, I am not unique, where we stand there, eyes heavenward, screaming "do you see any of this?" My Job season and really, it started much earlier. At 12 weeks finally pregnant with our miracle baby, the doctor looked me in the eyes and said, "I don't think I see legs." And the wind leaves your lungs and you start to sink.
.
At 15 weeks pregnant he had a name, Caedmon, old English for 'wise warrior' because you could tell he was a little fighter and we wanted him to fight all his days with wisdom from above. 6 weeks earlier my momma had found out she had metastatic breast cancer. A season that changes the way you navigate life. And you realize, even in the storm, that lovely is there if you seek it, a difficult thing to do when you're working hard just to breathe. But the choosing to seek it can change you. Our faith buoyed us, Community held us. And we kept breathing. Moment by moment, day by day. Even in that waiting room. .
For you Cade, my smart, kind, agile little warrior we celebrate the day, 2 yrs ago that took something away in order to give you the world. My little prince running through life on bilateral below the knee prosthetics. You do some things differently but don't we all? You are lovely.
I wish you all buoying hope and tangible lovely today ❤️ #motherhood #momheart

Thankful for friends willing to explore with me and let me take their pictures. 🦋#momheart

Today I said no to the opportunity and accolades of a stadium of 40,000, to instead to sit at this table and be fully present with my few. And I don't say that to toot my own horn.
Because....if I'm honest, sometimes staying small and dwelling in the mundane is anything but glamorous. Things inside of me twist and turn and feel uncomfortable at the mess of staying in the midst of real life.
And the praise is way better out there.
There are very few whoops and hollers and "you are amazings" going on up in here over folded laundry and math workbooks.
And is it wrong to do those big things? No way. I just knew that in this season, I needed to have my head and heart fully invested in this place, not planning and thinking of somewhere other. And as I prayed, I knew.
Right now, in this time, he is asking me to feed His sheep. These sheep. My sheep. His sheep.
To stay small. To serve well. To be present. To love ❤️ big when it feels small. I pray that I might be the sweet aroma of Christ to my family and to all those I encounter. (2 Cor. 2:15) "The prayers we weave into the matching of socks, the working of our hands, the toiling of the hours, they survive. It's the things unseen that survive. Love. Relationship. Worship. Prayer. Communion. All things unseen-and centered in Christ." -Ann Voskamp

Lord, let it be so in our hearts and our lives. Maybe we cling to You as we serve and love and give of ourselves today. Amen.

It's that heart of gold and stardust ⭐️ soul, that makes you so beautiful. #secondoldest

God give me eyes to see how you see in me.

Song of Songs 4:7
"You are altogether beautiful, my love;
there is no flaw in you."

This face!!

My morning started out like this. 👆🏼 Being a mom of 5 or any amount really, brings a vast array of surprises. My daughter woke up because she had an accident on her bed right after I put the turkey bacon in the oven. I went to help her shower real quick and came out to find the oven smoking, the bacon burned and no alternative food for breakfast. 👈🏻because grocery shopping is my least favorite chore... next to laundry... I decided not to let it get to me so we hopped in the car and grabbed breakfast sandwiches. 🙌🏼 The past couple weeks, my days have been filled with emotion. My own emotion. I have been crying a lot and haven't been sure why. My world has been overwhelming, but I am aware that I am allowing that feeling, but unsure why. Yesterday, my sister shared with me some observations she has had about my behavior. What it comes down to it, sometimes the things we swear we will never do as parents, we do. I struggle with empathy and absolutes. I have experienced deep emotional pain that many people don't understand. That is ok. Others have experienced deep emotional pain that I don't understand and that is ok. There is no one direct path that works for all people and that is why it's ok. 👇🏼this is what I'm telling myself. ❤️We all just need to love. ❤️Love without boarders. ❤️Love no matter our experience ❤️Love knowing there is no scale of better or best. ❤️Love what is right for you ❤️Love what is right for others ...let love flow in and out... #peace #love

“Until God opens the next door, I’m going to praise Him in the hallway.” "Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” "Don’t mistake God’s patience for His absence. His timing is perfect and His presence is constant.” 🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋Sometimes we need to be preaching to ourselves instead of listening to ourself. Proclaiming what we know to be true

I love to eat dough, so I went on a search to make it #keto friendly and I found this recipe. My goodness they are good 😊

When you fully believe God is in control, you don't step out in Faith – You Jump!

It's an issue that strikes at the hearts of millions of mothers: Can you be a great mother and a successful career woman? Is it possible for women to have it all? (oprah.com poll). And I say "Yes, Insyallah I can, I'm possible, I try to balance, I love my job, I'm a good Mom and my daughter is priority" Repeat! ❤
