Brace yourself: this might be a long one. 💕 // This move was a bit of a gut punch for me. I was telling someone last night that our moves from Pittsburgh and from Boston were both very unexpected, and had I known, maybe I would have done things differently... // but then I stopped myself, because I realized my “doing things differently” really just meant: don’t let people in. Don’t get too connected. Don’t dig the roots down deep. The thing is, the deep roots make the moves harder. Way. Way. Harder. // I’m an enneagram 3, so it takes a lot (or me being really tired!) for me to show that anything isn’t hunky-dory inside. It’s not something I necessarily do consciously, but I don’t feel the need to bog others down with my feelings. // The past few weeks, I have very intentionally created structured time to be quiet, for prayer, yes, but mostly just silence. I too often like to fill with noise when I’m feeling most vulnerable, so this has been eye opening for me in a lot of ways. (Maybe some I’ll share, but most is just for me.) // I’ve also set aside very committed time to pray for my 3 hooligans who call me mom. I’ve been more bold in praying for them out loud and together, and more disciplined in praying for them consistently. // I wanted to share one of my favorite “prayer reminders” with you: these stackable name rings from @slateandtell - I’ve had them now for a few weeks, and I rarely take them off. I love them, but I think the kids love them even more: Jones calls them my prayer rings and loves to find his name whenever he can. // Slate & Tell has let me give you $10 off any purchase with the coupon code: KACIA // Thanks for letting me share a little more about what’s been going on in my life and heart right now. How about you? Any moving experiences or wisdom? Any items or tips to remind you to pray more consistently? // xo.
