Today was glorious. I told you I talked Matt into taking some time off... Right??? Well, Tuesday is his birthday, and tomorrow is my daddies birthday, so to celebrate, I planned a weekend getaway. However, the weather had other plans, so we made new plans!
Today we went hiking (as a family of six + one dog) and went hiking. God opened up our grey Oregon skies today, and gave us sunshine. No it wasn't particularly warm, but, it was still glorious!
There is something about being out in Gods beauty, in nature, that makes me feel happy, and at peace!
Today was exactly what we all needed. I am so thankful to live in such a beautiful place. I am ever so thankful to have such an awesome family! I am thankful to be God's sparrow.
I will post lots of pictures soon, of our adventure(s). Tonight, I am pooped from hiking almost 8 miles today, so all of that will have to wait until another day!
Tomorrow, another adventure awaits! This stay-cation business is not so bad, it's actually pretty great!
I'm Mandy. Mama, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Friend, Lover of God... Each day is a journey. Life is an adventure. At this point in my life, I try to go one day at a time, enjoying the moment I'm in, because today is a gift that will be gone tomorrow. I hope this can be a place to share the joy that can be found in everyday simpleness, watching kids grow, enjoying those you love, and this crazy little thing called life!
