For some reason, I always feel like I can’t post something without a picture, so often times I don’t bother because it takes me so long to resize things! But after reading some of my friends blogs, I realize they just share witty anecdotes and strange happenings in their lives without necessarily feeling the pressure to put up pictures each and every time they log on – so here I am without the facade of my precious cherubs to hide behind!
Come to think of it, what is there to talk about besides my kids??? Well, I do have a fabulous husband that loves me more than life and is forever focused on God and our family. I got to have dinner with my angel of a mentor, Jackie, last night and be reminded that we are not held hostage to yesterday, that shame is not from God and that a man can legally hire a woman to take care of every need except the physical, so as wives we need to tune into that special need that only we can meet.
As there have been so many challenges in recent days, not only in our lives but in the lives of our friends and church family, I’m reminded that prayer is very real and necessary. I’m thankful for the friends that have come around us by bringing meals and caring for our kids so that we were in a place today where we could bring a meal to someone else in need. Nothing gets your focus of yourself and your own circumstances like serving others, and my husband is the pinnacle of that example.
On another encouraging note, our children are now drown-proof! Ok, so maybe I’ll have to attach a couple pictures, but we are so thrilled that they can both swim (or at least float) if they ever fell in the water. If any of you are looking for a top-notch instructor, Ms. Sarah really takes the cake. Ok, enough for today. I’ll try to do really do this without pictures next time 🙂
