My Legs Feel Better On Top Of The Covers

My three year old daughter is in the testing (for lack of a better word) stage.  Or is it just the "let's see how many hoops mom will jump through stage"?  For instance, today when I put her down for a nap she wanted me to tuck her in.  When I walked to the bed and went to tuck her in she said, "But my legs feel better on top of the covers."  So, I said good night and before I could make it to the door (and yes, I was kinda sprinting toward it) she said, "I want you to tuck me in." :: grrr ::

I pray that God will strengthen my faith and that I will grow closer to Him everyday.  But, when I encounter a trial that will stretch me and strengthen my faith, I tell God that I was comfortable doing what I was doing.

Outside my window.... a drippy rainy day that is bringing the worms to the surface.

I am thinking..... of my dear mother-in-law who is another year older today.  Happy Birthday Betty!!

I am thankful for..... the songs of birds that add some cheer to a gray day.

I am wearing..... comfy athletic pants and a cozy sweatshirt.

I am hearing..... a red-winged blackbird singing and the pitter patter of rain on the windows.

I am going..... to relax, curl up in a comfy chair and make the most of my quiet time.

I am reading..... Get Out Of That Pit by Beth Moore and really getting a lot from it.

I am hoping..... to be able to add a few trees to the yard this year.  We saw an Eastern Redbud this weekend and thought it was quite beautiful in it's spring attire.  We'd also like to create some privacy by way of a few additional pine trees.

I am creating..... a nice long grocery list.  We had french toast, hash browns and eggs for dinner last night because that was all the refri…

Outside my window.... a beautiful day with blue skies, apple blosssoms and dandelions.

I am thinking..... of how modern technology allows us to see an unborn child.

I am thankful for..... my husband's steadfast support.  I have been having a tough time with friendships or lack thereof lately and he is always willing to listen to my frustrations and offer logical advice.  He also reminds me that he's my best friend and innocently asks, "What more do you need?"  :)

I am wearing..... purple plaid pj pants with a purple tank top.

I am hearing..... my oldest reprimand my youngest for getting out of her chair while eating.

I am going..... to visit my neighbors new little girl today.

I am reading..... The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare.

I am hoping..... to edit my list of volunteer opportunities and pick a place to serve this summer.

I am creating..... a mess.  Getting ready for the neighborhood rummage sale this month is making the house look worse inst…
