yesterday i took a moment and escaped from the heaviness that seems to be looming over our house. i couldn't help but watch what was unfolding on our leaf and sun soaked front yard. these boys have the most contagious laugh i know. they diligently raked pile after pile of leaves together for the sole purpose of jumping and wrestling around in them. life is short and when feeling overwhelmed or stressed about it, take the time to realize all that you have around you. for in this moment i took yesterday i realized that family and these boys are the most important thing. everything else will fall into place with just a little faith.
