One of my favorite things to do with my family is movie night! We layer a couple comforters on the living room floor, and bring out as many pillows and squishy stuffed animals that we can find, and watch whatever Abigail will let us (usually Frozen or Tangled). For this movie night, we made it a little extra fun by making homemade pizzas to eat while we watched! These nights are just a little extra special for Abigail, and I admit, for me too!
After becoming a mom, I have noticed that part of me became a lot sillier, but there's another part that actually became a lot more serious. There's so much that goes into parenting that it can at times feel stressful. I find myself carrying so much unnecessary weight on my shoulders that it can be easy to become overly serious.
All that to say, I am learning to take things one day at a time, to cast my burdens on the Lord, knowing that He cares for me and my children more than I ever could, and I'm being intentional about having fun and making the effort to make ordinary moments extra special for my family.
The time goes so quickly, and I want to soak up as much as I can.
