This sweet boy is at such a fun, wild, crazy, stage of exploring his world and learning through discovery every day. I love being there for every minute of it, even though I sometimes just need a minute where someone isn’t asking me a question. His speech has really taken off and he is asking new questions nonstop. He found the shell above and decided it had tiger stripes like the tiger he saw at the Dallas Zoo. I’m completely biased, but I’m pretty sure he is a baby genius (just like every mother in history). I long to be the mama who is all in with my kids, loving them fully with the love of Jesus and guiding them through these childhood years.
Daily I marvel at his inquisitive nature and the pure joy he finds when he learns something new. He inspires me to look at the world around me with fresh eyes. He laughs with wild abandon and is so free. Do you laugh like that? I hope I do. In the midst of this depression battle, moments of pure joy and freedom are illusive. I’m soaking them up and trying my best to be in the moment, on the floor, playing, laughing, teaching, and fighting for freedom from this struggle.
I hope to laugh like this every day of my life.
What brought you joy today?
