this week.

i yelled a little too much.
i was a little too grumpy.
i worried a lot - which is not like me.
i was an anxious mess - also unlike me.
i had hurt feelings.
i didn't pray enough.
it was a struggle to find moments in each day that were worth remembering.
most of them i wanted to forget.
this week was just not my week.

but in a week that felt black & white & gray all over, this little guy added color.
in the little things :: like running into my bathroom while i'm putting on my make-up.
and saying "good morning, mommy!"

and running into the living room to tell me "A STORM TROOPER IS IN MY BEDROOM!"
and proceeding to shoot it with a fake gun.

or laying in the backyard on a blanket with the big blue sky above us for miles and miles.
and whispering to me "i can hear a helicopter, mommy. shhh, listen for it."

in a week where i wanted to forget almost everything, he brought me moments i will always remember.


  1. what a sweet capture!
    praise jesus for colorful boys.

    praying jesus' peace over you this weekend, katy.
    love you

  2. Those difficult mama days are definitely hard to overcome sometimes...what a blessing that your little fella was able to lift your spirits and warm your heart!

  3. Sweet moments like these make me excited to be a mom... one day. :)
