Would we like to have more? Yes. Would we love to have a bigger house, property, and extra money in savings? Of course. But what is it worth at this point in our lives to get there? It would be doable if I went to work full time. But I don’t want to miss things. I need to be there for soccer games, school recitals, cuddles on the couch. I have to remind myself that this time in our lives will fly by so quickly and it will all be gone before I know it.
We have everything we need, and get to do some of the things we want, and often times when I’m feeling down or selfish or jealous, I’ll just scroll through this blog at everything we have done. And I’m blessed.
Looking at the smiles on my children’s faces says it all to me. I’m doing what’s right. I’ll never stop trying to provide for them and make life better for everyone, but I’ll give just enough to slowly get there. Life should be more about enjoying the journey anyways, right?
