I have been blessed so much this week. My heart is full of gratitude.
#3 We got to raft the river and feel peace and calm and I heard my daughters giggling together and we “played” with each other Oar battles and water battles and just great company. I remember what it’s like to feel that peace of the river where nothings exists but the here and the now. Being present is the only thing you can do. I get to do that more often.
#2 I have a husband who loves me and honors me. He knows this week is a busy week for me. He just says, “go ahead and take care of what you need to take care. You and me are good. I’ll be here when you get back.” (Because when I go into school mode I’m in another dimension.
#1 And the best part is that after 8 months, I finally get to see my Kendra girl. Alabama is too far away sometimes. It’s hard for a mama because I went from seeing her everyday to seeing her a couple of times a year. But when she’s here, I get to love love love upon her and it feels yummy.
I have a collaboration post for this afternoon from another wonderful blogger, so stay tuned….but after that, I might be off the grid for awhile. The first two weeks of school are pretty busy. Wish me luck! ~Love ya, Marie

I will enjoy her as much as I can. It’s certainly not the easiest to juggle during a first school week. The beginning of the summer, I could have really spoiled her. ha ha… I will be back and catch up on my precious reading this weekend. I can’t wait to see your adventures! Namaste my friend.

Good luck and enjoy your week. I will say a prayer for you, too! As far as being on the river with your girls and husband, so fun and yes, you are blessed to have family and a good man behind you, supporting your being off the grid, in your ‘zone!’ is how I would describe my first days of school! Marie, may it be amazing!
