did you know
This is the 20th Academy Awards show my husband has worked.
We used to both work these shows.
I would produce the fashion packages and pieces about where they keep their oscars.
It was fun. And I dreamed of one day wearing a Badgley Mischka dress.
I thought their designs were oh so beautiful.
It's interesting how much your life changes.
Today I dealt with a poop issue, attitude adjustment, and anxiety over school resuming.
We actually had to abruptly leave whole foods where we met a friend for dinner due to behavior.
I don't even manage to watch the red carpet anymore, I'll just see the recap at some point.
But it's ok, because motherhood is a higher calling. I know that.
I just need to remind myself sometimes when in the thick of the messy and ugly stuff.
It helps when I get texts from my husband saying,
"Thinking of you...miss you."
Sometimes I miss my old life. I'll admit, nine years ago I was yearning to go back.
But was that something that was building for the kingdom of God? Hardly.
Am I now? I have to believe I am.
Even though some days it feels like I'm not sure I'm getting through or making a difference.
I pray that all I'm pouring into these little lives is for God's glory and that He'll use them mightily.
I know He sees the sacrifices we make as moms.
And I know the award that matters will come when He says,
"Well done, good and faithful servant."
