I is for Intention

I will have to catch up on  my I and J posts to go with my A-Z Blogging Challenge. But I’ve been super busy this week with Teacher Appreciation week, signing my daughter up for Kindergarten (*insert balling like a baby, wahhhh!!!), my family, Easter parties, birthday parties…the list goes on.

Isn’t it funny that you can have the best of INTENTIONS and somehow the time just gets away from you? or you are conflicted with a situation that you never dreamed of being in? or faced with major blessings in disguise?

It’s amazing how many times in my life my own INTENTIONS have turned out with competely different outcomes than I would have imagined. Sometimes for the best, sometimes in ways that I would have preferred not. But in the long run I know that every situation I’ve ever been placed in has a purpose in my life, will change the way I view things, and that with God’s grace nothing will ever be too much for me to handle (although lots of times I may personally feel like throwing in my own towel).

I have so many blessings in my life, things that I should never take for granted. My family being the most important. Lover Boy and I really try to shield our family from the harsh realities out there. We want our kids to grow up in a loving, stable home. We want them to know that things aren’t always perfect but no matter what there will never be a situation that we won’t be able to get through – together.

Regardless of how busy life gets at times, I pray that my INTENTIONS to focus on my family never fade. When it’s all said and done, and the day is over, it’s your family who is always there – through thick and thin. Cherish every single moment.

    I so agree with you. Sometimes we have the best intentions, but things don’t always turn out the way we want. I love how you say, “Cherish every single moment.”
