Well...in case you haven't noticed...it has been a while since I last posted! Life is CRAZY!!! But, life is so good at the same time. :)
I was recently thinking about how October is right around the corner...and that means that Owen has been with us for almost a year!!! I can NOT believe it! The past year has been the most beautiful and challenging year of our lives. We have all 4 grown so much.
The thing that I am reminded of over and over again through out this journey is how much God loves us. I don't deserve His love, but He loves me so much more than I could ever imagine. More than I love my babies, my husband, my parents, friends, and family. I just can't imagine a love so great. Yet I feel it. I really do...especially lately. I have had to remind myself to just take a few moments and appreciate the blessings. The things He has given me...because He loves me. ME...broken, messy...me.
I urge you to stop everything (harder than it seems) and think about that. Think about the sun hitting your face, or the wind blowing your hair. Think of the butterfly in your path. The rain falling out of the sky. The look from a loved one. Our God did this FOR YOU. He loves you so much that He would give you all of that. And then some. My new promise to myself is that I appreciate it more. And it feels so warm and cozy. :)
With that said...I am trying to slow down a bit. I am trying to focus where it is needed and stress a little less. OK.. a lot less. And for now, that means taking a break from blogging here for a while. Of course, God is still moving in the Willis house...and when He tells us to jump again (whatever that may look like) we will and we will share it with everyone. We are open books...and we always want to be that way. We believe God has moved so much (and crafted so many miracles) in our family, that we always want to share it with others.
I will still be posting monthly on Today's Housewife and The Stitches Blog. I will still be on Facebook some (send me a shout out if we aren't already friends). As always...please send me an email or message if you have questions or need prayer. :)
Thank you for being a part of our journey! I'll leave you with a few (or 12) pics.
Till Next Time!!!
To Our Sweet Owen,
Sweet boy...I fall more and more in love with you every day. Really. Your sweet kisses are perfection. And you are growing so much we don't know what to do! You truly are amazing. The past year you have taught us all so much. And we are still just thanking God that you are ours. That He picked us to be yours...such an honor! I know that He has big plans for you son. I can't wait to see what it is. You make me so happy. Thank you for being you...
Love you more,
