Soak it Up

Today has felt so full of all the feelings.  I got to hang out (er serve) in the nursery at church today and I had so much fun with the kiddos. My little man was particularly fond of sitting at the table in the cute little chairs eating snack. He also showed me his brave and daring side by trying to climb over a couch and jump off the slide. Sometimes he acts like he has no fear and all the world is so much fun.  I loved seeing all the other little personalities in there too. I love that our church has a full nursery. 

Plus, I totally rocked showing up at making food today.  We had pirate’s booty white cheddar Mac n cheese with bananas and baked potatoes for lunch. Then we tried a new tortellini recipe for dinner and ate garlic toast too. I love cooking and baking when I get the chance. Chopping up tomatoes and onions are right up my alley. 

I kept thinking today about just the sweet moments tucked in this hard season. I kept wishing in that backward sense that some things didn’t feel so surreal.  I recently read that we often want to hold onto our grief because it keeps us connected to what/who we have lost. That makes a lot of sense to me. We would rather stay in the grief than move through it. 

That’s all I really have for a Sunday night. How was your Sunday?
