Peace and Purpose
Oh, 2017. Where have you gone already my friend? April 18th. Just two months ago I shared that I was starting this new journey as a work from home mom and here we are, at the beginning of this new chapter in life. It's hard to believe it's a reality, and currently it still feels like a long vacation that will end too soon.
I like to think that the older I get, the wiser I become. I know most days it doesn't always feel like it, but this time, one year ago we received the news that my dear grandpa had lung cancer. We didn't know exactly what his time with us here on earth looked like and just four short months later we said our sweet goodbyes.
Grandpa lived a life full of purpose. At least from my point of view. He was full of wisdom, love and faith. He lived this beautiful life sharing God and his relationship with our Maker was one to admire.
Every single day, I feel like life passes by a little more quickly. Kenna grows up with the ticking of the clock and I chase my purpose in this life. I love being a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. I love spending time outside with my husband and watching him teach our daughter the essentials of life and simple living. I love creating home cooked meals to nourish my family. I begrudgingly enjoy keeping a tidy home where we can enjoy each other's company and invite family and friends. I love being a daughter of God.
In this new chapter, I don't know if my purpose on this life is anything beyond those things that I enjoy and simply sharing the written word. However, I do know that I want to do those things to the best of my ability. I do not want to take one day of this beautiful journey and new opportunity for granted.
Whatever journey you are on, I hope it is a good one and you can find fulfillment with where you are in life and a little peace and purpose.
