And just like that... I've made it home. Praise God I safe and sound. I'm not exactly sure what day or time it is but I had an amazing times and I still have roughly 1200 pictures and tons of memories. #backtolife#backtoreality
Reality check - My hopes and my reality don't always align.
One hope? I am going to feed my kids really well everyday and have a family dinner every night.
My reality tonight? With two of our kids having games in different towns tonight at 5, the family was split up and I wasn't on my game when it came to preparing a meal tonight. (I am still working on that whole meal planning thing). I found mac'n'the'cheese (as we call it around here) in the cupboard.
So yep, this was the kid's dinner...and one kid had to take it in the car to go😕
Sometimes I just sing to myself... 🎵Back to life, back to reality🎵
The truth is this reality was my best today.
I am learning that being hopeful is a beautiful thing yet when the reality is different from the hope, grace is a beautiful gift to extend to myself - or others.
If your hopes too are different from your realities, I invite you to join me and... Pause. Breathe. Pray.
Instead of berating ourselves, let's gently accept our reality and let go what was and extend grace if needed so we can let go and move on. Tomorrow is a new day☀️ and life is too precious to sweat the small stuff.
