Five Minute Friday {13}: In Between

Things have been status quo around here for a while. I feel like I’m at that in between stage of life again. Like something incredible or terrifying could be just around the corner. It’s exciting and unnerving at the same time.

I believe that all we can ever do with our in between seasons in life is try our best. Wake up with anticipation for the gift we’ve been given of another day. Approach the motions of our day with love and try not to get too frustrated with setbacks like the toilet overflowing again or the tenth accident of the day during potty training week. {Those two go hand-in-hand, I guess.} Learn to appreciate the little things we’ve been blessed with, like overall good health and a roof over our head and a week’s worth of groceries in the refrigerator. Life is good.

As scared as I might be about the in between times in my life, I’m beginning to learn to embrace them rather than hide from them. Because as much as it may feel like an in between, no one ever really knows. What I do know is that all we’re ever promised is today.

So I’m going to carry on make the most of it.

    Interestingly enough I always feel in between…funny how that works. Keep up the God work.

    We might not know what awaits us in those scary in between times, dear friend, but we do know the One who holds it all in His hands!

    The in betweens are frightening, but it is here where I learn to depend on God the most. :) ((hugs))

      Your post is great, too! (Love this whole 5 Minute Friday concept, actually.) When my husband and I first had “the talk” about kids, he wanted four while I would have been happy with one. If you’d told me back then we would be contemplating our third (maybe even a fourth down the road), I wouldn’t have believed you! But I don’t feel like my family is complete yet, so here we are. We determined we would never really be ready…financially, emotionally, etc…so we’re just going to leap and see how it goes. Good luck making that same decision.
