Life is Crazy . . .

Life is crazy . . .
That's all there is to it,

I've just resigned myself to the fact that it is always going to be so . . .

When I had little kids at home, I thought that life was crazy,
but I was optimistic that someday it would not be so.

When I was a young mom, with four kids under 10
and a full time nursing student, life was crazy.
But someday I would finish school, and then life would settle down,
and we'd leave those crazy days behind . . . never happened . . .

When I had a houseful of teenage kids, life was crazy.
And I thought as they began moving out, going off to college, getting married
that someday it would not be so . . . still waiting . . .

And years later, working as an RN, nurturing a photography business,
Relief Society President, still a mom and wife I didn't think we could fit in one more thing . . .

Then these little faces appeared.
and it's off to the park, stroller walks, playdough, crayons everywhere,
diaper changes, naptimes, mac&cheese, peanut butter, spilled milk,
swingsets, trampolines, carseats, water-water-everywhere, bathtimes, bedtimes . . .
And life is crazy.

Ain't it the truth? I am not to the grandbaby stage yet but it is right around the corner. Next week I begin my empty nest adventure and I am a little scared. Reading this post made me realize that I just need to wait for the next phase of fun! Thanks friend.

Oh Kristin... I just love you. I cried when I read this because I think my life is crazy, too, but this reminded me that I can DO it.
