I am SuperMom without the supernatural powers

I love taking care of my family. I love being the wife and mother. I honestly love doing the things that need to be done in order for our family's needs to be met.
  • cooking
  • cleaning
  • bathing kids
  • dishes
  • laundry-all steps
  • paying bills
  • diaper duties

Despite the happiness I find in these tasks 9and others not mentioned), I also wish that sometimes, just sometimes, I could snap my fingers, or wrinkle my nose or tap my feet AND IT WOULD ALL GET DONE in the blink of an eye.

I enjoy these things. I find them entertaining at times and definitely fulfilling. I can feel my love pouring out onto the things I do, because I know that this helps my family's needs. But I need a break sometimes. I guess its only human.

If it were possible, today would be filled with snaps, wrinkles or taps.


But alas! No Such Luck...

Where has this year gone?!

Our bathroom is on the second floor and we have a big window in the shower. The view, in my opinion is beautiful. All you see (if the window is open, because its a frosted window) are trees and leaves and sky. When I shower, I love to look out the window. Its almost as if I'm in the trees.

This morning as I was in the shower I was looking out the window and I noticed some "bunches" of something colored red. I was very curious what in the world it could be so I kept observing...

There are red leaves on the trees!

Can you believe that? Already!

This year has flown by thus far. Its been a great one, though. Full of many different experiences. I know next year will be even better! But for now, I will be enjoying the cooler, fresher weather and anticipating the beautiful colors of fall.
