For Today... April 27th, 2009
Outside my window... a soft rain falls
I am thinking... about my relationships... how they develop, evolve and change... what responsibility I hold for those changes
I am thankful for... my daughter's new confidence in going down the stairs. We'll be baby gate free very soon!
From the kitchen... Sunny Morning Muffins that I watched on Cooking for Real
I am wearing... brown athletic pants, blue ribbed tank, messy bun
I am still reading... In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger. I have to admit, I wasn't sure what to expect from this read. I've read a few of her other books and have found them all very helpful. This book was not supposed to be helpful, but rather a thumbs-up of sorts for SAHMs.
Last night, I shed a few tears as I turned the pages and thanked God that I am not the only mommy who experiences the wide range of emotions and struggles that I do as a SAHM.
I am hoping... to find a replacement for my morning walk since the rain kept me inside
I am creating... a packing list for our family vacation. Only a month away!
I am praying... that God holds my words in His holy hands, that He leads me to grow personally and discern the validity of my feelings
Around the house... laundry waits as always, but a sparkling kitchen offsets the looming clothes
One of my favorite things... is listening to my son play pretend in the bathtub. The adventures that take place in there... sometimes prehistoric, sometimes futuristic, sometimes a pirate adventure... very fun to watch.
A few plans for the rest of the week... Teaching my last week of religion class for the year, working on PTA responsibilities, being Mommy, trying a new recipe
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you... from our wedding. So much has happened since we held hands and headed into our new life together. It's wonderful to know that I'm where He wants me!
