39:52 Sweet

It's fall and nothing is sweeter than a fresh apple.
I bopped over to my sister in law's house yesterday. She loves to garden, and the hard work shows.  They had two 5-gallon buckets full of zucchini along with, two 5-gallon buckets full of apples from their apple tree. 
Since our visit was drop in style, I offered to help cut up apples for apple juice and apple sauce. We visited while we chopped apples and drank coffee.
This guy was so excited to help. He willingly kept filling the counters of apples and shooing the other little helpers out of the kitchen.
I wish I could have bottled the smell of the apples cooking on the stove. The breeze was light and gently, pushing the sweet aroma through the house.
The kids also got to go let the chickens out and collect their eggs.
Their excitement almost makes me want some chickens.
They were so excited about the eggs they wanted eggs for lunch. Never mind that they all had eggs for breakfast.
I guess there was one who wasn't too sure of the chickens.

38:52 Outside the lines

Do you travel outside the lines or your comfort zones?

Are you a risk taker?
Or do that in which you are comfortable and secure?

37:52 Emotion

Emotion; any feeling; such as joy, love or fear.

Such as anticipation. 
Or excitement.
It is rewarding to watch the different emotions of my children. Watching how each one deals with the situations, or what type of emotion it causes.  Each one of my children are alike but yet so different. 
I know I am a lucky mom that gets to watch her kids grow. Sure at times I don't always feel so lucky, like when the cup of milk hits the floor an hour after scrubbing them. Or when you finally sit down to feed the baby, then the one on the toilet needs to be wiped and the other one is digging and dumping the pantry. Lucky, is the last emotion I'm thinking.  But these moments pass all too quickly. There are many mixed emotions as my kids get older and their independence grows. How quickly that time goes!

36:52 Golden Hour

For me, as a mother, this is what the golden hour looks like to me:
(Blessing # 3)
When the waiting, heart burn, sleepless nights, and the anticipation all come to an end.
Then a great new beginning starts. The clock seems to stand still. This little child enters the world, taking their very first breaths. You hear their little cry. You stare at this little one so full of wonder and amazement.  It is then that you forget everything that might have been a complaint. You pause to thank God for a perfect child to welcome into the family.
