its here. oh the busy season i always beg for. i scratch one thing of my list and the feeling of happiness and accomplishment floods me and then i add eight more things to the list. dang. sure, some days i get overwhelmed and a tad bit stressed out and then i remember how happy i am that i am busy. this is me. this is leah. busy. i love it. so although i constantly am feeling like i should be cleaning or blogging or editing and i haven’t worked out yet today … oh and look at the sun shining that i have yet to lay out under … its all apart of it, this crazy busy life. last saturday i shot a my ninth wedding of the season and after that was overjoyed with the thought of having a few weekends off. it just shows that God knows what he is doing because i needed a break and to have a few weekends to myself and some summer time. matthew and i will be cramming as much in these next few weeks as we can to enjoy this time off and then august is going to hit me like a sledge hammer … and i’m excited about that. odd i know.
when i’m busy like this, i try to soak in the days, and i definitely lean more on God then ever to keep me staying positive and remember that there are bigger things in life than my schedule. so many people out there that need him more than my picture schedule but he sure can help me concentrate and remember what is important.
“He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be moved.” Psalm 62:6
Father’s day was amazing this year and i had so much fun spending some time with my dad and step dad. God has put them in my life to also be my rock. So blessed to have these amazing men in my life. I am a mini me when it comes to my dad. two peas in a pod. i love how he raised us girls with love and discipline. i told him in his card, i appreciate every spanking i got because it shaped me into who i am today. Not all dads are the same but my dad was definitely the discipliner in the family and i can only imagine how hard it must be to deal with your naughty children when you come home from a long day at work and all you want to do is hug them. So its nice to have a day to set aside for dads and say thank you for dealing with our crap. 😉 i won’t go into detail about what we did in the past 😉
Unfortunately I never had the honor of meeting matthew’s dad but we definitely thought of him all day and so thankful that matthew is the man he is a lot because of his dad and the impact he had on his life.
