Tuesdays Unwrapped

For something a bit new, I thought that I would participate in the Tuesdays Unwrapped over at chatting at the sky, an amazing uplifting blog that I've recently fallen in love with.

The goal of this is to tell a story or post a photo documenting your messy, lovely, unexpected gifts of the small and ordinary nature and to unwrap your daily gift :) Beautiful right?

Sometimes life gets so heavy for me and I just feel weighed down. There is constantly something that needs cleaning, laundry that needs washed, children who need love and attention... just something. That's not to say that I'm not happy to do it all and I'm not thankful each and everyday to Him for blessing me in so many ways, but sometimes I feel bogged down.

When things in my house get too stuffy or too serious and we need to "blow the worries away" as we call it, we go for a quick run through the yard. Sometimes all you need to uplift you is the miracle of the grass under your feet, the breeze across your shoulder, and the sweet laughter of your children.

Bogged down... ugh, I hear ya. Its so hard to accomplish EVERYTHING, from cooking to cleaning, to running a business from home (which for me, is the only reason we can afford for me to be at home)... and not feel bogged down. It was nice to blow about a bajillion balloons last night, so that when Gracie and Annelie woke up today, they were wading through an ocean of balloons. It really made today magic, and it was so FUN to watch them just be kids with tons of balloons.

Kids are the best. And yours are pretty darn stinkin' cute!!

ahhh... what great advice on "blowing the worries away"! I love that. I'm so glad you linked up...great photos!

Now, I have to ask if you will re-link to Mister Linky using your permalink so that the link goes directly to your Tuesday Unwrapped post rather than your homepage. Here is the link you should use instead:
