These mornings have been perfect. They've been the perfect mornings to take our coffees and Bibles out on the back deck and spend a few minutes before the busyness of the day takes over. Yesterday morning before church, Brad and I took our coffees out to the alpaca pasture and had an impromptu 30 minute "date" (Brad put a bench out in the pasture for me to sit on and visit with the boys.) It really was a great way to start our day.
I had a wonderful mother's day. After a wonderful morning at church, I took a tiny nap (oh, the luxury), and then we took Midi and drove to a local walking trail to spend a couple of hours. The trail runs along a creek so Midi (and the kids) enjoyed splashing and wading through the creek. We finished up the day at my parents enjoying a wonderful meal that my mom prepared.
This morning we're leaving in a bit to visit our friends at their farm. Then I will be spending the rest of the day (as well as the rest of the week) cleaning the house and packing boxes full of stuff to sell at my mother-in-law's yard sale this weekend. Brad and I are on a mission to simplify our lives of things and stuff. The thought of having less things feels so freeing. Easier to breath. I've been learning that the more things we have, the more tied down we are. Time to cut some of those ties.
