The Simple Life

It seems that so many people that I know like to live life more expensively, or like thaeir share of worldly items. I like these things as well. I like for my kids to wear nice clothes, to have amazing parties, to wear fancy big bows, and for us to just be happy.

But one thing that I have learned over time is that these things cannot buy happiness. The awesome parties, may not always be there but the love will. Yesterday, the family and I went for a walk on the farm after all of my kids left and it was such a special reminder of how I long for the simple life.

I have been kind of homesick or just wanting my "own" sick lately and this helped put it all in perspective. We may be saving money and it may take a lot longer for us to get the new cars, new clothes or new home than we expected but we are together. We are such a simple family and hope to always be, but my heart glows even more when we have special family moments.

God has lead me into a family that is more than I could ever imagine. I am so thankful for this and should hang my head for all of my envious actions that I show at times, because truth is life cannot get any better than this!

Oh Paige you are so right. We are all so blessed whether we have a new car or drive a old one, live in a big fancy house or a small house. As long as we have our family we are so richly blessed. None of us need to forget this and yet sometimes we do. I know I do and I have to snap myself back to reality. I'm okay with driving a old car because I have my kids and my kids are happy. :)

Thank you for posting this. Such a good reminder that I needed.

I love this, its so true!! I feel like I see a lot of a constant pursuit of "stuff" and "things" and I think its nice to just get back to the simple things which is what were doing over here too, just simply enjoying each other because time is something you cant get back and should not be taken for granted!!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
