Back to normal
I've never seen Ezra so entertained as he was earlier today trying to put the cap back on the water jug. He did this for at least 15 minutes! CRAZY!
OKay... things have calmed down a bit. My hubby is home, Ezra's asleep, and as I type, Chris is spoon feeding me yummy chocolate chip cookie-dough ice cream and we're talking about our trip to San Luis Obispo. I feel like everything is under control again and I don't feel so overwhelmed like I did earlier today...
I've always prayed that Ezra would be a blessing to the people he's around, and tonight I got to see him bless a very dear friend of ours. It was like the breath of fresh air that I needed- the reminder that God knows what He's doing and I'm just getting in the way with all my worrying. Ezra sat with our friend Joel and giggled at him and gave him kisses and played silly games with him while pretending to call people on his cell phone, and I could just see the joy that it brought Joel as he was able to lay down his cares for a short while and play with our goofy little son. I found myself whispering under my breath "thank you jesus", because it was literally like I was seeing a prayer being answered right before my very eyes. amazing.
I'm trying not to stress and I'm trying to keep my cool, but today was one of those days where you're just not as graceful in life as you'd like to be.... I had two left feet today and I stumbled and tripped my way through it-- but the important thing is that I made it. It may not have been graceful, but hey!, life rarely is... am i right?
