When Life Gets Busy....

I could apologize for my lack of blogging, but in reality, summer is a bustling time between family visiting, working every day, and tending the garden, I have done my best to live in the moment.

I mean really be present.

I've been retraining my brain to think in a different way, where I no longer wonder or worry about the future or what could be, rather I just be.

What a difference it has made!! All those years of worry just melted away, and I found myself laughing with my family more, sleeping better, and accomplishing more throughout the day!

That's a win-win-win in my book!

And last week was the icing on the cake, as my parents came out for a visit. We haven't seen them in a whole year, and as you can imagine, one week just flew by.

Yes, he really is this cute :)

And now, with the house all quiet and the company back in California, God has blessed Texas with 70 degree weather and plenty of rain. For us Texans, especially in northern Texas, the drought has been horrid the past four years, and we never see rain this late in summer. Everyone is breathing a sigh of relief and thanking God for giving this quenched earth some very unexpected rain. It has been glorious, revitalizing our spirits and enriching the land.

What a blessed life.

Did you get the soap?

Enjoy your cool weather and rain! We are happy to send it your way for a while!
