These two pictures make me smile because they remind me of each and every single day right now.
I wake, waves rising, most days I feel my head is just hardly above the water. It's thrilling, it's scary, it's fun, it kind of feels like drowning, or jumping in with all abandonment. The continual mixed heart and mind emotions of motherhood with lots of little ones (and semi-older ones!) ~ like waves that are just high enough to make me wonder if I can make it, but not too high that I don't feel the excitement of being blessed to jump them.
And then the second picture. This automatic gesture - thumbs thrown up in the air when she saw me!
The emotion on her face almost gives me chills because that is how full my heart is when I make it through. When I put my head on my pillow at the end of the table, whoops I meant to write bed, or wait, I think I meant end of the day lol (yes, some nights it's at the end of the kitchen table!) close my eyes, and as tired as I might feel and as "water-logged" as I might be, there is a thumbs up in my mind.
From the One who got me through in the first place.
To Him be all glory.
I guess it's kind of like all of life, this earthly journey. The waves. The waves will always be there. Always. But how we view them, live through them, to whom we look to in the midst of them, that is the main thing. Our response when we make it through. . .
:) Thumbs up.
