Time We Are Given

Time does not stand still...

I've been following the story of Rory & Joey...it seems so many people in my "age bracket" are being forced to live out the unthinkable...

As children we don't recognize so much, the hurt going on around us...and then as we get older, we "hear" and "observe" more and more...

It's not that it wasn't happening all along...we live in a world where hurt is just here...and we are forced to choose to put one foot in front of the other OR to quit...

We just often get wrapped up in our own "stuff" that we don't see it as much around us, until the stories come across social media or hit closer to home...

Rory & Joey have a song that they recorded (they are country music artists, if you didn't know) but the song never made the cut to the album. The title is "In the Time that You gave Me"

When I see candid moments, busy lives that recognize the importance of just "taking a breath" to capture a season in time...when I see families like the one showcased in this post...I am hopeful...I see families that choose to live each moment...truly live and relish in it...

It doesn't mean we ENJOY doing the dishes or sing a song and tap our feet whilst changing diapers...it's not that we're "happy all the time"...it's the mindset of putting one foot in front of the other and choosing joy amidst the mundane, amidst the hurt, amidst the hectic-ness of everyday life...it's letting somethings go, to make room for the better...it's the hugging on your little man and looking him in the eyes to tell him your love him so that he KNOWS you mean it!...

little moments...

tiny seconds of a crazy day...

In the time that we are given...
