Catching UP

I'm so sorry to all my
BLOg buddies...
I have been working like a maniac non stop for 2 full weeks,
and haven't had time to sit down long enough to post
anything breathtaking or insightful.
I haven't even had time to go through my vacation pictures from the beach yet.
But.. I did a quick look and saw this one of "Little Brady" putting mud on his CRAB.
I think that was his attempt to keep it from getting away.
Watching him at the beach completely filled my heart with JOY.
We (or me anyway) often take for granted the things we see everyday
as if they are no longer exciting....
BUT to watch him see life
is like
an iv of incredible
pumped straight into my veins..
It somehow made us all look at the waves, sea gulls, mud, and those
ever so fabulous sea shells in a much different light..
Thank you LORD for this little gift of a child
to remind our family that we are surrounded by gifts each day
if we only take the time to stop and see them.
May we all see today as a present and open all it's gifts..
