SAHM + Spring = Sanity

I love the first winter snow.

I love having a white Christmas.

The snow can add a lot of fun to the winter months.

However, after 4 1/2 months of being in the house with a preschooler. . .it is time for the snow to go away.

The past two days have been beautiful. The sun has been shining and the snow is almost gone.

Yesterday my little one and I sat on the deck having a picnic of Mac & Cheese and Strawberries. I took a deep breath and smiled. I remembered why I love being a stay-at-home mom so very much. It is amazing what a little sunshine and fresh air can do for a mom and a preschooler.

Today I am enjoying the beauty of Spring. It is so fitting that this season of new life is coming on this Holy Week. So I am not only celebrating spring and the sanity that comes from spending time out in the fresh air. I am also celebrating the most amazing gift that I have ever been given, new life in Christ. As I sit here and think about it, I take a deep breath and I smile.
