They say people will do crazy things for love. I’d have to agree.
Over the years, I have learned to love new things all in effort to connect with my precious boys on a deeper level. I don’t think I would naturally make shooting noises with my mouth, learn stats about our teams newest recruit, listen to Ed Sheeran songs, or sign up for a hiking trip into a mountain range all on my own. These are all things that I have been led into and they have made me a better person (period).
We are approaching my favorite season of the year, and it’s my favorite season because it’s when I connect with my boys even more. I just printed off the Michigan Football 2017 schedule and I can’t wait to tape it up on my cupboard at home. I can’t wait to spend our Saturday’s rooting for our favorite team and hosting party’s where I make our favorite food. It makes me happy because it makes them happy.
For whatever reason, God didn’t give me any girls. He gave me five sons.
I want to know my sons.
I could just let them do their thing while I do mine, but then I’d miss out on all of the amazing things that I’ve learned from them and that would be silly. I’m glad that God knows exactly what I need to discover all that He has for me.
While hiking in Wyoming last week, I was awakened to a new level of adventure. There’s more to this life and I want to learn how to embrace the beauty found in simple things along the way. I’m grateful that God has used my sweet boys to teach me new lessons in life. What a gift.
