Girl Time!

This season of having two daughters who are teenagers (Okay the little one is steps away) has been very interesting. The clothes swapping and exchanging is constant. The fighting over space in their bathroom is never ending. What's "fair" is still up for discussion in our house. (Insert eye roll)
About once a month we are trying to reel in emotions and decipher what is just "girl craziness" and what needs to be dealt with.
But the flip side is when we do get to sneak away and have just us girl time, it is very sweet. It reminds me of why saying no to most stuff so I'm not a crazy person and only yes to the best stuff is so important. I cherish the long conversations we have, sometimes about deep stuff that could be life changing some day. Just to get a peek into their hearts and see what God is doing there is so good. So encouraging in my own walk as a daughter of the king.  But mostly the inside jokes and ribbing we do to one another is what keeps me sane. I think we have all realized that life can be hard but it can also be an adventure full of twist and turns we didn't expect and as long as we remember where our foundation is and we stick together we can have joy in even the most mundane of days.
Be blessed friends.
