FOR TODAY, Monday, April 20th.
Outside My Window The sun is peeking over the hill behind my house. Long shadows of tree trunks stripe across the grass.
I am thinking about how silent this house is in spite of two children who are awake.
I am thankful for this silence, even if it only lasts for another moment.
From the kitchen, breakfast dishes wait to be rinsed and filed away in the dishwasher.
I am wearing my "drop the kids off at school" outfit- athletic pants and a T-shirt.
I am creating photographs today.
I am reading "In Praise of Stay-At-Home Moms" by Dr. Laura Schlessinger.
I am hoping that this week is productive. I need a productive week!
I am hearing little footsteps on the hardwood floor upstairs.
Around the house there is lots to do to recover from a weekend of house renovation- laundry, floors to mop, a bathroom to scrub.
One of my favorite things about this week is that I'm starting a regular walking-schedule with a friend!
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Edit Pictures, order pictures, complete my cabinets, tame the yard.
I am praying for guidance and patience, for the wisdom to be the friend, wife and mother God would desire me to be.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
New life is amazing to watch. Our cat had kittens a week ago, on Easter. Jewels is a reminder that I can trust my mommy instincts.
