PART ONE. I'm back from vacation. The hardest part was leaving my 15yr old puppy. I would not board him but elected to have him stay in the home of someone who was skilled with senior dogs. I used an app and carefully selected a person. Even had a "meet and great" which went well. Seemed like things were going to be great. BUT NO. We dropped Rocky off the afternoon before the cruise. Next morning, I woke up to a text from my carefully selected caregiver. "Rocky can no longer stay here.He barked last night. If you could make other arrangements, that would be splendid. I do not want Rocky here." I was to board a cruise ship which was sailing at 3pm. What happened? See part 2 or check out my YouTube video which I will be posting today.
My momma heart ached when my last child started school this year. He started high school and boy did it sink in that our children are not ours for very long. I mean they become their own decision making person. They won’t always “need” you for every little thing like we might think. God is teaching me to be open handed with a lot of things and my children is where I learned this years ago. The tighter we hold onto “our” desires the more shattered they become. It has been a process of time holding onto God’s promises and His desires that mends our shattered and brokenness. What season of mothering are you in right now? What lesson is God teaching you?

When is the last time you’ve felt true peace? 🕊💛✨
As parents, we can’t see everything, be everywhere, or know all that goes on each day in our children’s lives, but God can. He sees, He knows, and is there. And we can be assured that He is able to care for our loved ones even better than we can.
Happy #nationalrelaxationday🌱 I’ve finally made it out on my balcony to just relax. After this cuppa ☕️ I’ll be diffusing some amazing essential oils (lavender and bergamot) to help make this day even more about R E L A X A T I O N & R E F L E C T I O N ➖
