You've gotta love Southern California weather. Only 3 days ago, it was 113 degrees at our house. Today it was stormy all day.

As has been our routine the past couple of weeks, tonight we ate dinner and then loaded the boys up into the wagon and went on a walk around the neighborhood. We usually catch a lovely sunset, often run into friends and church members that live nearby.

But tonight was different. As soon as we walked outside we saw the entire sky lit up like it was on fire. I grabbed the camera, and am so glad I did.
I had one of those moments while we walked where all I could do was thank God for it all. I was thanking God that I could make a healthy, delicious meal that my entire family could sit at a table together and enjoy. I was thanking God that I wasn't one of those cars just getting home from a long day of work on my way to pick up my kids missing that glorious sunset in my rearview mirror. I was thanking God for the man that was pulling the wagon of boys...the man who works so hard to allow me to be driven crazy by those nutty little darlings.
I could go on and on. It was just one of those moments that I wished I could pause and replay again and again. And that is why I needed to blog about it, so that I might relive a brief moment of this sweet life I lead.
