Relaxing at the condo
Me & my babies
|Haley took this picture. She said she wants to be a photographer like mommy. I told her I hope she gets paid to do it. :)|
We had a wonderful relaxing vacation. It was actually nice to leave my phone at the condo. I joked that I was going to leave it at home but my mom made sure that didn't happen. She reminded me about 20 times as we were walking out the door. I did manage to leave it at the condo ALOT! LOL Sorry Mom! It was nice to have so much quality time with the people that mean the most to me.
Robbie reminds me often that not everything in life has to be planned and I need to try to be open to change. Anybody that knows me well knows I struggle with this on a daily basis. As I sat and marveled at the awesomeness of the waves reflecting in the moonlight I realized how little control I actually have in my life. I know everything that has happened and will happen in my life is because God makes it possible. He has a plan for me. Proverbs 16:9 "A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps." God has blessed me with a wonderful husband and two pretty great kids. I am very proud he picked this family for me. I love him and am so thankful for the path he has chosen for my life. I am blessed beyond measure! Thank you Lord from whom all blessings flow.
