“Weddings are great
but have you ever sat with your husband on the back porch swing?
Dedications are sweet
but have you ever prayed over your baby in a quiet nursery?
Church is amazing
but have you ever felt the spirit while you’re singing in the car?
Date nights are fun
but have you ever eaten leftovers while sitting together on your couch at home?
The weekends are awesome
but have you ever drank fresh coffee by a window on a quiet Tuesday morning?
Big games are fulfilling
but have you ever seen your kid learn something new at practice?
Girls’ trips are fantastic
but has your friend ever shown up at your door in the midst of chaos, in perfect timing?
Holidays are the best
but have you ever given a gift for no reason?
Vacations are the sweetest
but have you ever stayed right where you are and
soaked in what God gave you?
Don’t miss out waiting for
the next big thing,
the perfect occasion, the right day.
The big things are big
but the small things are too.”

‘If we send our kids to school, we’re ‘selfish.’ If we keep them home, we’re ‘living in fear.’ We’re offered strong opinions from others not even in our position.’: Mom urges ‘there is no right decision’
‘I’m tired or vibrant. I’m drinking water or in the drive-thru with a Coke. I wake with the sun and get everything done or I’m coasting till bedtime.’: Woman admits ‘I often wake up wondering which side of the line I’ll fall on today’
