it’s this thing of knowing he’s got my back.
and, i’ve got his.
it’s this thing of wishing life were easier.
but, trying to embrace the hard.
it’s this thing of realizing we are not much.
but, knowing in Him we are more.
it’s this thing of being willing to do whatever it takes to make the other succeed.
and, knowing they are doing the same for you.
no matter what.
no matter when.
no matter where.
no matter how.
and, while that may seem an odd preface to a Fallish Fete, as i’m sitting down here today and recalling the things that made me oh, so happy the other night….i’m reminded of the hard it took to make it all happen.
i’m reminded that i could not do these things without my husbands support and sacrifice.
i’m reminded that even though these last weeks, and the weeks before us are hard, somehow, because of Him in our lives, we’ll get through it.
i’m reminded that even though my husband physically felt lousy and received news of a grandparents passing while i was enjoying myself with a few dear friends, he gave up, so i could give away.
real hard sometimes.
but, somehow, it’s supposed to be.
it’s supposed to have these days, these weeks of intense hard so that we realize He wants more for us someday.
it’s this thing of giving up.
so that others can receive.
so that others can gain.
so that others can be more.
it’s what He did for me….
oh, if only i could always remember He gave all so that i could be anything………
fall is really THE best time of the year.
i could handle it for 6 months instead of the short 3 that it is.
but, it’s okay.
i tend to live it up while it’s here.
the above pictures are from a dinner party i hosted in my backyard this week.
it was the best of times.
the best of weather.
the dearest of friends.
and, one more picture preview.
look at those kids.
i kind of like them.
and their dad.
happy almost-the-weekend to you!
