Joining in the Gyspsy mama’s 5 minute friday tonight. 1 word prompt “real” and 5 minutes to write.
Can I be honest?
sometimes I look at my life and it just does not seem real. I’m in awe and wonder at how much God has blessed my little family. I have an incredible hubby. He’s laid back and extremely patient. He’s super wise and always makes me laugh.
We have a wonderfully rambunctious little boy who keeps us on our toes. He is the light in my day and has taught me so much in his short 18 months on earth thus far.
We have a precious baby girl on the way. Named after a woman I admire dearly (hubby’s mama). We are all in excited anticipation to meet this sweet girl.
We don’t have it all. We live in a small apartment up many flights of stairs. Hubby and I share a vehicle and he works long hours some nights.
But we have each other. We have faith in God. and sometimes…it feels like we have everything we could possibly need. When my family first started out, it probably didn’t look like we would become much, stay together or even be very happy. but today, as I look at my family, I see who we are, and who we are becoming I see that I am so blessed.
I have big dreams for the future. But when I really stop and think, I see that I’m living my dream. This life is REAL. I don’t know why, but I am thankful and in awe of God who has blessed us so richly and so far beyond what we deserve.
