Glimpses of Life Collage and Thankfulness

Life. It’s so… life-y.

“What’s up?”

I can’t even know how to answer that.

Can you?

It would take days to even begin to answer.

I know you know.

Homework. Kids activities. Lunches. Meetings. Coffee. Deadlines. Grocer shopping. Laundry. And the last-ditch efforts to check things off the Summer List. Hithertheretofore… a Glimpses of Life Collage, if you will. These cover the end of Summer to the beginning of Fall…

From football practices and games, to a homecoming parade (and float decorating), to cheering, to Viking hats on a sunny Saturday walk, to teen drivers, to needy puppies, to one last sunny day on the dock,  to Seahawks, to Whole30, to waiting in the car, to one date night in months, to beautiful flowers at a inspirational women’s luncheon…

The glimpse … of what is actually up.

No glimpse of the dishes that didn’t get into the dishwasher before bed. No glimpse of the toys and clothes on the porch. No glimpse of my bank account balance.


All of that is there too.

Life is such a journey, isn’t it? I feel like I am constantly learning and changing and growing and reverting.

I love going back through my too-many pictures and breathing in the bright spots in life. I don’t often take picture of the dark spots. I am finding my photos have become a bit of a thankfulness journal. Lots of pictures of the kids and the doing and random silliness with my husband. Even the photos of food. It’s something to be thankful for. Having food to take pictures of.

Even the busy-ness is a reason to be thankful. Idle hands/devils’ tools and such. I love that my kids have the opportunity to develop skills and discover their passions… and I need to keep that in mind as I struggle to keep it together and get everyone where they need to be.

Ya know?

It’s all about perspective… thankfulness is. Well, it’s not ALL about it, but you know what I mean.

Speaking of being thankful… I have some laundry to tend to. Because we have clothes. And that, is a reason to be thankful.



And thankfulness for this crazy, wonderful life.
