Love Life


Walking into the garage after Elijah's basketball game, I noticed the bin of sidewalk chalk and suddenly had an urge to draw. I told Fonzy and the boys, and they all looked at me kinda funny. What? The urge hit me, so out to the driveway I went.

As I sat on the driveway, I noticed how warm the concrete felt good. I listened to the boys as they rode their bikes, talking loud, laughing, being boys. I sat there, enjoying the summer evening....taking it all in.
Being in the moment.

I had no idea what I wanted to draw. But as I sat there, I realized that I love my life. I love my husband, I love my boys, I love the life we've created together. No matter what kind of day I'm having, they always seem to make me smile....and that's the message that came out with the chalk.
