Gratituesday: September and Still StandingBy
I ran into a friend at the soccer complex Saturday, and her question to me as I headed with my boys to our van cracked me up: “Why are you leaving? Don’t you live here?” Ha! Yeah, that about sums it up. :)
I try not to whine too much (or too loudly). Forgive me if it seems like I complain about soccer season. I truly love soccer games and practices and watching the birds begin to fly south while I’m at the soccer field and running back and forth from the soccer fields to drop off boys to referee games and coming home from games to scarf down a quick meal so that we can head back to the soccer field again or packing food so we can eat during half time…
I’m serious. Supporting our York College soccer teams and participating in the “Rec-League” with our boys is so stinkin’ much fun! I can’t stay away, and if YC has away games, I try as hard as I can to watch the games online.
But yes, August through the end of October is just a little bit hectic for us. (I was actually trying to finish the newest eBook project I’m working on by November. I’m pretty sure that is not going to happen.)
So today, I’d like to give a little shout out to God. We’re heading toward the end of September - and I’m still standing. How about that?! Through umpteen jars of applesauce, dozens of soccer games, and countless stinky shin guards and missing soccer socks - I am surviving.
Better than that, I’m lovin’ it.
Now, just make sure you don’t open our living room closet if you come over and we’ll all get along just fine. (That’s where our cleats and shin guards are kept. You don’t want to go there. Phew!) ;)
