15 years, 24 days, 18 hours & 41 minutes…but who’s counting?!?

Yesterday my joy was Indescribable. Being the word nut that I am I had to look up the definition for ‘indescribable’- defying expression or description; "indescribable beauty"; "ineffable ecstasy"; "unspeakable happiness"; “a thing of untellable splendor. Yup, that pretty much sums it up! Why this indescribable joy you ask? All four of my children are now in school. It is the first time in almost sixteen years that I will have five hours a day to myself. Now please don’t get me wrong. I LOVE MY CHILDREN AND I LOVE BEING A MOM. But the thought of having some time alone during my day makes me almost giddy with joy. I celebrated this momentous occasion by going out to breakfast with my sister Jennifer and one of my girlfriends who also has four children. I shared with them that when you are looking through the world with your joy glasses on everything is beautiful. The sky was more blue, the air more fresh and crisp, the French toast I had for breakfast was even sweeter! My sister was following right behind me in her own car as we drove to breakfast. She called me on my cell phone, I asked her, “Can you see it Jennifer?” She said, “See what?!?” I said, “Look at my Suburban… even my car is skipping today!”

**In honor of my very special day I have included a candid shot for my ‘Wordless Wednesday’ that my sister took yesterday of me. I have also included a video of Chris Tomlin’s song, “indescribable”. Scroll down and hit play…then feel my joy!!!!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I couldn't get to you by you comment but my browser picked up your information.
Congrats on your freedom!
I remember the feeling. Take advantage of it girl.
I know the feeling --breathing even becomes easier. :)
I love the comment about your Suburban skipping. Cute.
I am taking care of my Father in law now--he is living with us. When my sister in law comes and picks him up for the day and everyone else leaves--girl... there is a sound of freedom in the air. And it is coming from me!
