breathe

breathe

Some days I feel like I am going crazy... the kids running around yelling, screaming, fighting, the house is a mess again, well still.  I haven't showered in who knows when and crap it is 5 o'clock and I don't have anything to make for dinner.  Those are the times I know I need to get out, just for a minute and breathe.  Take a step back to enjoy my surroundings, my beautiful life and family.  I am so grateful for my endearing red heads, even in all the craziness. When I take time to breathe and relax I can remember all the beautiful things my children say and do and that it is more important to spend time with the kids than cleaning the house all day. 

I love this picture by SoapChickAsh she says "There is real joy in just dancing and letting go" I totally agree!

It really was so inspiring looking at all your self portraits.  Not only are you all beautiful you are so very talented and brave.  Thanks again for sharing!

Have a beautiful day :)

Gorgeous self-portrait, April! The light is beautiful. I don't think I've ever "seen" you before. It's nice to, finally. And your choice of other photo is wonderful!
