project 52: week thirty five

family is…never guaranteed

project 52: week thirty five - family is...never guaranteed
I had lots of things I wanted to post about today. The fact that it’s my birthday today, the internal changes that I’m in the process of changing (which will eventually lead to external changes I’m sure) and the date night we were blessed with a few nights ago that sparked major changes that will be taking place that are just in their infancy right now. But late last night I heard the news of a fellow photographers tragic loss of her 21 month old little girl and today, there is nothing else that I can think about.

On a day where I want to complain about the *lack of* birthday celebration, my husband being out of town, the 3 months of sleep deprivation I’m experiencing and on and on. My heart aches for the family today as I watch my 22 month old stroll around my own house saying silly things and being sassy and I realize that I have 3 healthy children that I can enjoy today because tomorrow is not a guarantee.

James 4:13-15
“Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”

project 52: week thirty three

family is…unafraid…sometimes

family is...unafraid

When I was thinking about the picture for this week I realized it felt really ‘familiar’ and then /i realized that all the way back in week 3 I posted a very similar picture of our adventurous life!

Today I fly to Chicago by myself with all three kiddos. When I have told people this usually their eyes get real big, they scan over my kids again (I’m assuming reminding themselves that yes, there are 3 of them and they are under 5) and then they give some encouragement or advice on how I can get through it…usually they say “good luck with that!” and they walk away, really glad that they are not the ones that will a) be doing that or b) on that plane!

I’m feeling pretty confident though. I’ve flown many many times before with different ages of kids. I’ve ran through the whole procedure in my mind and know what the ‘hard parts’ will be: getting through security, checking the stroller at the gate and of course, keeping my almost 2 year old in a seat for 2 hours! To be completely honest I fully expect it to suck pretty bad, but you know what? It won’t be forever. It will be over and we will arrive into the arms of our friends and I’m pretty sure that I will vow to never do that again, until next time of course! So if you think of me today, pray for me :)
