Today, and everyday, I am also thankful for so many other things.
  • Our home which gives our family a place to gather.
  • My Lord and Savior.
  • Spending sweet time with family.
  • The food on our table.
  • This holiday which reminds us all to take a few minutes and count our blessings.
  • My hubby who puts up with me.
  • My kids who continue to seek God and walk in His ways.
  • Sweet friends new and old that God has given me to do life with.
  • And, my family. (seriously I love them more than I can even express)
What are you thankful for today?? I’d love to hear!!
Hope you have a beautiful weekend of counting your blessings and sharing time with people that you love!! See you back here next week!

Twenty One Today

I wasn’t planning on posting today. But, today is my oldest son’s birthday. Yep, that’s right, my first born turns twenty one today. For some reason kids birthday make me more sentimental and reminiscent than my own. I don’t feel old enough to have a 21 yr old, but I promise you that I am (21 doubled + 2)  😉 This guy is on my heart today and I had to share a few words.

Monday Morning

Monday morning. Ugh right? Every Friday we’re all “TGIF” WOOHOO TO THE WEEKEND!” And then Monday comes around and we’re all “ugh”. So ya there’s that. And, by the way, what happened to September?? How is it already October?? 🙄

This Monday is no different. Fall has seriously been uber busy around here! Somehow we have allowed our younger two boys to be way more active in extra stuff then we ever did with our older two. Ya, they had their things, but just not as many. These boys literally don’t have a free evening, except for Saturdays most of the time. But then we usually have a game or a band thing sometime during that day. So, never a full free day ever. Which makes me kind of sad. These poor adolescent boys are ex.hau.sted people. My middle kiddo was so tired that he couldn’t even think to decide what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday… How did we get here?? I have been letting them skip things lately that aren’t required. (But, they love all of their things, so they don’t usually want to skip.) I have so been there. All the things are good. How do we eliminate a good thing??

Friday Ramblings

This week has been busy. Honestly since school started I can say that every week has been busy. Yes, we are down from 4 kids to 2 but neither one of them are driving yet. We are missing our extra drivers that are away at college. 😉  We really do limit their activities, but between school, church, and their one or extra-curriculars we are just going all the time. We have become very intentional about making time for rest, and that has helped a lot. We are hoping to even fit in a date night this weekend!

Long story short, I don’t have a project to share with you today. So, instead I’m going to share a few random things from this week. Sorry in advance for the iphone pics.  😎
