“When you have nothing left but God, then for the first time you become aware that God is enough.”Maude Royden
🌼Sometimes, when I least expect it, I get these little reminders that my son is growing up. They jar my brain a bit. They other day his phone went to voicemail. He had set up his mailbox before his voice broke. I wasn’t expecting to hear his little boy voice and I almost burst into tears.
This evening I walked past the table and saw his wallet next to my car keys and my first thought was: “what man is in the house” and then I realised what I was looking at.
My baby is growing up. I don’t know if I will ever be ready for each milestone. I am however grateful that I do get to witness each one and help him through them too. 🌼
🌼Today I am grateful for the Christmas’s I got to spend with my mum. This evening Alex and I put up the Christmas tree while listening to some Christmas carols. I found myself in tears as the carols took me back to 40+ years of midnight masses with our family. My mum loved those services and especially the Christmas carols. So today I am grateful for all the Christmas’s that I was blessed to spend with her and our family. 🌼
