Mother's Day weekend
Cannon Beach was the destination for this last weekend. I have been looking forward to relaxing with my family at this most awesome beach house for quite a while. My parents, grandma, my sister and her hubby, and Andy and I enjoyed the scenery, good food, a few walks down to the beach, as well as lots of talking and reading. Great weekend.
But seriously, one of the best parts about the Cannon Beach beach house: kids room supplied with flat screen, cable t.v., toys, and bunk beds galore. Yes, I let my children go goo-goo eyed with cartoons. We do not have cable at home, so it is a luxury to have "good" cartoons available. Throw in a few trips to the beach to let them run and explore some good energy out, eat lots of yummy food and cartoons and my kids have a BLAST. Not only do the kids have a blast but mommy and daddy can have some moments of luxury.
I love being a momma and a wife. I am blessed to have the busyness of children and the gift of responsibility to raise them. I pray everyday for more insight, more revelation of my role in their life, and His peace that passes all understanding to fill in the many, many holes that I cannot fill. My hope is in the God who knows each of my kids intimately; so much so that His plan for their life is so much better than my plan. I pray for grace as the grow, wisdom to know when to go and when to stop, and a supernatural ability to laugh and enjoy life in every season.
God is good! Happy Mother's Day to all mamas out there.
