Finding Normal

It feels as if our life has begun again. As if the wheel that God has been turning for my family has finally picked up to a pace I can recognize. But I am finding myself remembering that even the slow pace was good and familiar because it was what God wanted for my family, so it is in turn was what I wanted for my family.

We find ourselves in a new kind of normal. One that involves a state with a city that has unspeakably good weather all year round. Weather that makes playing outside in the sand at 6:30 in the evening more then bearable. Especially after having just finished eating a home grilled meal outside for the third night (or is it fourth?) in a row.

I am thankful that we even have the opportunity to find normal, because the joy of watching my sons chase after their dad is wonderful.

And then getting to feel the joy of seeing Conner become happy and adjusted...

At every angle?
Now that is a wonderful normal.

I can totally relate to a new kind of normal. I guess that is a good theme for the Sutherland brothers' families this year... A New Normal! :) New Jersey is definitely that! LOL Are you still wanting to visit this summer, or do you just want to bask in the presence of your wonderful hubby and beautiful boys? Love Ya!

Can I visit and bask? I would love to still come up, just not sure what that would look like right now.
I hope your new normal is finding you well!
