Happy Friday friends! Is it really Friday already!? To be honest I haven’t been keeping track of the days this week. My kids are out for Spring Break and if you follow me on Instagram you know we have been hanging in Maui – our favorite getaway. I have to apologize for the lack of posting. Last Friday I confessed that my previous week was less than stellar and how nothing on my to-do list was completed. Well. The top of that to-do list said “finish three posts to share during vacation.” Hence the reason you have been hearing crickets on the blog this week. Posts weren’t finished and this week I’ve been too busy sunscreening my kids to worry about it. :) I have to say that taking small breaks from real life and technology and just spending time with family is SO refreshing for me. Then I come back completely rested and excited to do the things I love. We all need that, right!? It’s good for the soul.
While days are blurred on vacation, I do know that today is April 10th. April 10th is a day I’ll never forget. Five years ago today I had quite a scare after Kole was born and came dangerously close to losing my life. My sweet husband kept friends in the loop with posts like this one and then a year later I shared what I remembered about that day. It was scary and the feelings I had during that experience will always stay with me. They are a reminder to me that things can change in an instant and how precious our time is here. They are a reminder of what a gift I’ve been given to still be here today.
I love that the anniversary of this special day for me falls on my kids’ Spring Break. We always plan a trip for the week and I do my best to soak up as much precious time with my family as possible. I remember all that I have and thank God for all He has given me. I thank Him for the gift of being here to hold my sweet little boy on the beach while we watch his sisters and dad play in the waves.
Hug your loved ones a little tighter for me today. :)
I’ll be back with lots to share soon! I’m feeling much better than I did last week and those unfinished to-do’s are about to get some serious check mark action.
