Untamed and Unafraid

I have been needing to remind myself of this. After nine years of being at home with the kiddos, things often go unnoticed, unrewarded, and I need to tell myself, just because I pick up after a wild trio every day, doesn't diminish my wildness.

The simple fact of raising the boys with the goal of making sure they are intelligent, kind and resourceful is a task of no small undertaking. They haven't tamed the girl that loves to swim, and dig holes. They have only challenged me to be more than wild. To be unafraid of the mundane, to know it can not tame me.

So for today, a quote to print and remind me ( and all you other brave, extraordinary people who are reading this.) we are on a journey.
