Fill those gaps....

Do you ever feel as if your day has spun out of control? That you have a to-do list that just never ends, no energy, and a baby who just learned how to crawl and how to get into everything...Some days before I go to bed I  wonder what I really even accomplished that day. Its so weird to me that some days I wake up ready for the day, I could conquer the world if i wanted. And then the next day comes and I just want to hide under the covers. Life never slows down, i think it only speeds up haha.

Yesterday I was reading and came across this quote that I love : " Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake." - Victor Hugo

I love how this quote just puts me at ease. There is someone more powerful than all the rest and hes watching over me. He'll fill in those gaps that I somehow missed during my crazy days. I can feel at peace knowing that after Ive tried my very best that hes right beside me to help me and my family.

Lately my crazy days have been consisted of baby proofing this little home of ours. Preston is all over the place learning how to get hurt all the time haha. It seems like no matter what I do hes finding new ways to get himself into trouble. Some examples: I was fixing my hair...he crawls into the bathroom and grabs the hairdryer cord and pulls it down .... BAM ... hairdryer smacks him in the forehead. Then the next day he pulls a magazine off of the coffee table that had my water glass on top of it and it hits his eye ( see picture above of his little cut under his eye ) I have learned that I cannot keep anything anywhere. My house has to be spick and span all the leaving a mess anywhere because he will find it...

Good post Chels! I haven't gotten on the computer for a few days so I had to read your last 3 or so posts. They were so neat. I loved the one about how you and Spenc met! How cute! Isn't it AMAZING how things work out. I remember when you and I were planning our double wedding with two guys I am so GRATEFUL we did NOT end up with! :) Things always happen for a reason and Heavenly Father is so aware of us and loves us so much!! How exciting about your diet! I need to workout so bad I just never find the time. And I am the same way. Somedays I am soooo impressed with how much I get done before going to work, and then other days koby comes home the house is a mess and I am still in my jammies. I miss ya and hope your doing awesome!
