Today, I must say thank you to all of my blog followers for your kind comments this weekend. It seems as though JandA&Co. had some controversy this weekend. I must apologize for letting my feeling show with such boldness. I know the original comment that I posted about was not meant to hurt me. I did however want to address it in hopes to explain why I don’t play the perfection game. I shared that post in hopes that you would know I don’t blog to gain fame, fortune, or to be perceived as anything more then just a normal mom. I appreciate your thoughts on the subject. Once again, thank you to those who left such uplifting comments. Uplifting is what I want my blog to be. I never want you to walk away from here feeling discouraged. That is why I choose to keep my blog upbeat. Thanks again to those who sent me emails, and left comments with such sweet words. You all made my weekend so special.
Today, I let my kids eat a donut for breakfast.
Today, I have been thinking a lot about forgiveness.
Today, I enjoyed singing with my children. We sang a beautiful hymn about God’s creations before they went to school.
Today, I smiled when I saw a man at the grocery store open the door for his wife, and then kindly push a stray cart back to the stall. Gentlemen do exist. I smiled because I am lucky to be married to one.
Today, I felt sad when I went through my pictures and realized how few pictures I took of our family events and goings on since we moved.(that’s why these pictures in this post are not recent) I miss my camera.
Today, I challenged myself to use my camera more, specifically capturing the little things that happen around here.
Today, I smiled when I saw these beautiful scenery pictures I took in PA last spring. The world around us can be beautifully captured and used as art.
Today, I worked on a little project for baby Ruby’s birthday. It amazing to think that should would be two.
Today, I enjoyed every minute of working in Isaac’s kindergarten class. Sometimes I secretly think it would be fun to be a teacher.
Tonight, I worked hard making dinner for my family and my sister-in-law’s family. Baked Spaghetti found here; and it was YUMMO!! My SIL and I take a turn one night each week making dinner for one another. I love it because one night I don’t have to cook, and I get to eat her yummy food. I also love that I get to prepare for their family each week as well. It has been a win-win. I suggest everyone find a neighbor and get to meal swapping.
Tonight, I was riding the bike at the gym. I felt a little kiss on my cheek; it was my hubby. It gave my butterflies.
Tonight, when I got home from the gym I spied a homemade hair bow and a note. They were both made by Stella for a neighbor girl. It does my heart good to see my children serve one another.
Tonight, I read to my kids. We are reading Kingdom Keepers. While I read Stella always French braids my hair.
Tonight, I had a bed time snack. It was a beautiful fresh peach pie that my neighbors just brought to the door.
Tonight, I must say I am one blessed girl. There is much to be thankful for.
