What I'm about to share will either be endearing to you OR disgusting. Either way, I'm cool with it. I have not showered in three days. THREE. Instead, I'm focusing on getting my boys healthy, cleaning my home and enjoying family. Right now my youngest is super sick. His illness came on the heels of my oldest getting well after his second go 'round with the yucks. Many friends and family are calling to check in on us and see how we're doing and how I'm handling everything. Honestly, shockingly... I'm fine. I can't believe how much peace and joy I have found in the midst of this.
Generally, three weeks of sickness and being couped up in the house would drive me Ca-Razy! But this time, I can't explain it. I'm finding joy in the cuddles, delight in little slumbered steps to the potty and beauty in the sweet rosy cheeks brought on by fever. Do I like having sick kiddos? No! Do I wish we were healthy? YES! But, by God's grace I am finding contentment with where He has me right now. This surprises no one more than me. I'm usually the gal that takes 1-2 showers a day. And gets out of the house at least 2-3 times a day. And has to have at least a few Mommy outings weekly. And yet, here I am - stuck like Chuck and I like it.

Sorry if you came here today to be inspired by some stunning photos of lovely interiors. It's just not in me right now. This is where my heart is and I'm grateful.
What are you finding contentment in today? xo
