what if?

what if the house was spotless?
what if all the laundry was washed and put away?
what if you'd read all the books on your wish list?
what if you used all the yarn in your stash?
what if the house was decorated like your favorite magazine?
what if you'd finished all the craft projects on your list?
what if?
what then?
find joy in the journey, kristyn.
it's in the process of life that you grow, love, explore, become.

i love this post, and i couldn't agree more. but would you graciously allow me one more "what if"? a "what if" so powerful, that it can both contradict your joy in journey idea and enhance it beyond measure. all at the same time. my "what if"? ... what if you were married to the girl of your dreams?! because, i am, and it piles heaps of joy onto the joy in my journey. love you ... mark.

A lot of people live their whole lives wondering "what if?" Live your life so that you won't wonder "what if?"

If... I'd have more time to be a better wife and mother... more time to think about reprioritizing my priorities...

Endeavoring to enjoy them (my kids), enjoy him (my husband), enjoy Him (my Savior), and experience joy deeper every day-

Kristyn,
could you be any more blessed? What a wonderful husband you have!! What a wonderful friend you are!! What if I didn't have you both in my life? I would be very sad. Love you both. Kris
