Today consisted of snuggling indoors because of a winter storm that blew in last night. I’m not complaining though. We got to pull out the geo-tracks, read books, and drink lots of coffee! All in all it was an amazing day!
Is anyone else feeling ready for spring? I love the cozyness that winter brings, but I also am itching to see grass and go on picnics and long walks outside. I know, I know, I have a long time to wait before then. 🤷🏼♀️ Time to make some decaf coffee and cuddle on the couch to read some books and knit a scarf.
Bloom where you are planted! That was a refrain my dad always told us growing up and I believe it’s true no matter what stage of life you’re in. If you’re a mother chasing toddlers around, invest in those children and be as caring and compassionate as possible. If you’re single, invest in the lives around you and seek to bring joy to others. Stop focusing on the challenging parts of life and start making a list of all the ways God has richly blessed you today *running to get paper and pencil now* and start thinking of ways you can be a blessing to others.
We are waltzing into this weekend like 🙌🏻💃🏼💕 because daddy is home today and yesterday we made a turn for the road to health! *insert me singing alleluia at the top of my lungs* Now for a slow morning of coffee and banana pancakes - the kids devour these and I love that they are only a couple ingredients (oatmeal, bananas, and milk). . What are you all eating this morning?
This week has been a hard one for this mama. Everyone in the house came down with something and it has literally taken all week to feel a semblance of normal again. These days are sometimes hard and long, yet we serve a God who gives us the strength we need to accomplish these tasks. And what greater task than raising up children who love and fear Him!
We had a rough day yesterday with this little one being down for the count. I have to admit though that I really enjoyed all he extra snuggle time with him. We read books, watched old cartoons, and just waited for God to heal his little body. . By the end of the day he was able to keep some water down and actually ate a bit of food 🙌🏻🙌🏻 and we all had a full nights rest! Praise the Lord! Thank you for all of your prayers - it means the world to me!
