"We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully," Romans 12:6-8

Family, memories, time---- Grau Family Preview

Today’s post is long overdue. I had the privilege of working with the Grau Family once again this past Saturday. Stacy and I met in nursing school and she is just as sweet as her family. It has been such a blessing to take pictures of her family a few times over the past few years. Seeing them interact as a family was so special. Their children are so clearly loved--- was very easy to see that they are a family who spends time together, making memories, and supporting one another. That’s what family is all about right? Being intentional, being supportive, being compassionate, being there.

As each day passes and I am one day closer to meeting our newest family member--- I find myself reflecting lots on these things. Getting more and more excited to start traditions, make memories, build a family base on love, and just spend time being there. That is my newest stance--- being there. Making intentional time of undistracted interaction. Although my husband would say that I am a “type A” personality--- I want to be the mother who lets the dishes pile up for the day because the books we were reading were too good, or the fort we made were too fun, or the conversations were too important. I want my children to be my priority and have comfort in the fact that everything else will eventually get done. This could prove to be a slight struggle as disorganization can get under my skin, but I don’t want to miss out on my children because of something fleeting.

Thank you Grau Family for sharing this special time in your lives with me. Enjoy those kiddos of yours--- they are something special! Happy Wednesday--- God Bless.
