Everyday I wake up and wonder how it's possible to love my little family more than I did the day before. As I look at my kids right before bed, right after we pray with each child, my heart is overjoyed. I love every single one of them more than I feel like my heart can handle. I fall into bed thinking my heart is topped off then wake up the next morning beside the husband I love more than I can explain and turn my head to realize there is a small face staring directly at mine standing so close to my bed with their warm breath spilling out of their little smile. I sigh as I realize that my heart grew again. Overnight. And I can tell that yet again, I am a little more in love than the day before.

"Just Because" Flowers are the BEST!
I had a good day yesterday. I got some house work done. I got to spend time reading my Bible and had a fire going in the fireplace. I enjoyed playing blocks with Jack and Carter. I got to spend some time reading with Natalie. It was a refreshing day. Then, Jeff strolled through the door after work with a big boquet of roses. As my heart was melting I was in pure panic mode for about 3 seconds searching my brain trying to remember which occasion I had forgotten but alas, there was none. I asked him what they were for and he just said, "Because I love you." And I love him back. A lot.
