After my devotional in the morning, I started it out with some loose sketches and watercolors to finish my journal pages from yesterday. It was a beautiful moment because I was in bed and Toddler was next to me on Daddy's pillow watching his favorite cartoon.
And then it got REALLY wet when Toddler jumped on the bed spilling my flowers onto my bed!
Now we're just taking a day off to relax, no pressure of going anywhere or doing anything. Its great! I believe its good to take some time and process last months events and yesterday's goodbyes. I already written yesterdays post, but didn't have time to actually post it so here it is:
As we pulled up to the airport, emotions ran high. A few tears would be shed at my mother-in-laws departure back home. Even though she'll be gone she'll leave behind many precious memories that will forever be charished. When we get in line to drop off the luggage, it really starts to sink in.
Our mornings will no longer have a prepared pot of tea, the house will be quieter and trips to the playground less frequent. It will be harder to leave the house as the motivation to entertain is gone. The downstairs guest room will be empty no longer filled with warmth and laughter.
I am thankful for every minute that we had, the images we can share and the impact that they've had. My sons life has been enriched with the presence of his grandparents and the love that they've shared. Now that this trip is over its time to plant their next years trip back.
While we were at the airport my sone got sidetracked by a pretty girl who took his hand and he went where ever she lead him. In this case it was for some window shopping. Hubby saved him though as from experience he knows that ladies never just window shop.
But before the sad goodbyes we spent some perfect hours together exploring a beautiful city. Our last sweet memories to keep us going until next time.
