Choosing joy is not always the easiest task in the world. Sometimes it feels impossible. Like when you’re fighting that same sin over and over again. It’s frustrating to see little to no progress on overcoming the trials of life. However taking a step back from the inward focus looking at the bigger perspective makes me realize how much I have to be thankful for! I serve a God who loves me - even with all my sin - and that is something to truly be joyful about!
We made it! Last night we ALL got a full nights rest and it feels amazing!! 🙌🏻 Thank you all for your prayers and ideas yesterday. I’m not sure what made the switch from last night, but I’m so thankful! . Now let’s see if it lasts. 🤔
So I don’t think I got any sleep last night. 😩 The toddler woke up hysterical and we couldn’t figure out what was wrong. He slipped in and out of sleep all night but never long enough for us to actually string some consecutive hours of sleep together. I wish I knew what was going on - I feel so completely helpless! . Any ideas are more than welcome! Send prayers my way that tonight we can all get a good nights rest. . On a happier note, I just installed this adorable wallpaper last week and have been moving pillows around to tie in the new bold color. At first I thought it might be too much, but I’m loving the pop and cheerfulness it brings to this house!
I love clean houses! And right now my house is actually clean! Took some time this week to sell some things that just weren’t needed and took up too much space and weren’t functional and it is so much better! Being intentional with the things in the house makes it feel so good!
Fall nesting has bitten me hard! Every spare moment I have I’m painting or doing some project to my house. Yesterday I put up wallpaper!!! 😍🙌🏻 it’s by far the boldest thing I’ve ever done! Stephen doesn’t think it will last very long before I want to take it down, but we will see. Right now I’m loving it! . Last night I went to @anthropologie with a friend (it has been forever since I was in that store!) and had a blast! But on the way home all I could think of was that I missed tucking my sweet little ones into bed that night. 😢 I find it funny that whenever I’m away from them I miss them, even if it’s just for a little bit. . LOVE 💕 these precious children of mine! 😍
Both my children are asleep for naps today! I can’t tell you how excited I am to be saying that. It has been over a week now that we have been doing nap time/room time a bit differently and while it started out great, it was easy to see after a few days that he NEEDED that nap. Yesterday was the last straw for me and he side of his bed went back on! I put him to bed early and he didn’t make a noise, but just laid down on his pillow and went to sleep. It was like he was saying thank you for giving him his bed back. 🤷🏼♀️ . This mama is thankful for a quiet house in which to hear myself think and work on a few sewing projects.
