Real Life

It's Monday and life is getting more real all the time.  And for that I'm thankful.  As a teenager and especially in college, I spent a lot of time in my head and less time really engaging with others and my surroundings.  A lot of people are starting new stages in their life right now - new school, new relationships, new roles, even a new season is about to begin.  No matter what your new 'thing' is, you only get this opportunity once.  I'm on the downhill slide now of this pregnancy and the realness just keeps coming.  It is so exciting but I could miss it, overlook it or not really appreciate it.  I've done it before and I'm sure I'll do it again. But, this time around let's really live it, give it our full attention and don't hurry it away.

Last year about this time, we took a trip to Colorado and this was taken at the Great Sand Dunes Nat'l Park.  Talk about real life, after hiking 3/4 of the way to the top, we turned around because of the SAND STORM that attacked us!  It was a great day. :)

Amy, you're so awesome! I love reading your blog! And thanks for the reminder...that's especially good advice...especially in regard to kids.
