It has been an intense week. My days started at 5 and some days this week did not end until 11. However there is something satisfying in living each day to its fullest. I remember when Nate was about the age Andrew is now I was overwhelmed at the realities of being a working mom and having a baby. This time around I am filled with thankfulness. I am glad for everything that fills my days to make my life so full. I am so thankful that I have a job which both challenging and rewarding. I'm also thankful I have friends to pray and laugh with. I am thankful for a god who loves me and cares about the small details of my life and gives me strength where I am weak. I am thankful for a husband who takes me out for oysters and octopus, and of course I am so very thankful for the two little boys who fill my life with joy!
