I just got home from a wonderful vacation to Montana and Idaho. It seems that vacation always has a way of making me step back, take a breath, and gain new perspective on the journey I call my life. I have realized amidst the grandeur of "Big Sky Country" that I'm in a hurry too often, miss to much, and love too little. I've realized once again that the little men in my life named Aidan and Dominic, are amazing gifts from God. I've realized how selfish and self-centered I can be and how unloving I am at times to the husband God has given me. Why is it that just taking a step back from our daily routines and pausing from all our busyness can do that?

On the car ride home, my three-year old reminded my husband and I that "You don't need to be stwessed out 'cause God always takes car of us."

From the mouths of babes, huh?

What a time I had. From taking in the fresh mountain air to enjoying the view of the grazing deer; from the majesty of the Smoky Mountains to the joy that a day at the playground can bring to a child; from a ride on the lake in my Aunt Carol's boat to listening to the squirrels chatter on the roof of her lakefront cabin---I''m refreshed. Thank you Lord.
