My backyard yesterday morning... Beautiful and horrible all at the same time!
I love my backyard, the trees, the shade in the summer, the birds that flock there, the room to play with my little girls! But this amount of leaves = a lot of work!!!
This is my yard yesterday afternoon- after way too many hours of work...yes, I was exhausted.
But it is worth it!!! All of the work to take care of this yard is well worth the work that goes with it.
Just like life. Luke's illness creates work for us both. Sometimes quite a lot of work, actually. But it is so very worth it to have such a great marriage with such an incredible man!
Teaching is a lot of hard work sometimes- but again, so worth it in all of the great relationships and learning for both my students and myself!
Life is full of that abundance of leaves most days- but it just means that life is also full of the beautiful, tall trees that give shade and attract birds, and give me a place to enjoy my family.
I am so blessed.
