Family.....

Ryan and I saw Les Miserables over the weekend.  I have no words to even accurately describe how much I loved it.  The tears would not stop.  The music was exquisite and the characters were so perfectly portrayed.  It really sheds a whole new light on the story when you can see the faces up close and their expressions.

In the very last scene there is a line in the song the says,

"To love another person is to see the face of God."

I have thought about this for the past couple of days and have thought about how very thankful I am for my family.  It is not always easy to be a mom and a wife, there are countless hours of work and worry, thankless meals of crying and fighting, but at the end of the day when they are snug in their beds and their little faces are peaceful and quiet, this line now comes to mind.  Through all of the hard parts, the love of another person is priceless.  And to give love to another person is truely perfection.  And when the thank you's and helping hands come around (which does happen often) , I am so grateful!
