Blue really is a pretty color
I was giving Violet (our youngest and fourth daughter) a bath and something made me laugh. If you have ever been to our home you see A LOT of pink. There is lots of princesses, Barbies, fairies and other girlie toys. What you would probably be shocked to see is something that I have used for all four of our daughters. It's a blue towel. That's right...BLUE. I got this towel at Ellie's baby shower and at the time thought it was odd, but thinking eventually we would have a boy didn't think too much of it. Well, four girls and no boys later we are still using this blue towel. As I looked at it and smiled I realized that my life has turned out so different then I thought 7 years ago. I also realized as I looked at our relatively healthy family how blessed we are. I feel lately like I complain a lot about my situation or the stress in my life. When I settle down and reflect on this blue towel I realize that life is not what I expected...
