FOR TODAY September 23, 2013
Outside my window... a beautiful sunrise shining through some early morning fog.
I am thinking... the leaves are changing color rapidly!
I am thankful... for the warm afternoon sunshine that spills in my windows.
In the kitchen... cucumbers, zucchini and cauliflower from the garden.
I am wearing... charcoal gray sweatpants and my track and field sweatshirt. I just got in from an invigorating walk. It felt good!
I am creating... a birdcage cover with fun patterned materials.
I am going... to write some letters to some very special children today.
I am wondering... how my sister is doing. She is still in the hospital with her new little one. It's been three weeks. She is heavy on my heart.
I just finished reading... Sleeping in Eden by Nicole Baart. I quite enjoyed it.
I am hoping... to take the advice of some wise mothers who tell me to enjoy these days, weeks, months and years with my children because they go by way too fast.
I am looking forward to... baking an apple pie soon. Maybe today!
I am learning... to make every minute count. With four children it's sometimes tricky to spend one on one time with each of them. I find that even five uninterrupted minutes alone here and there throughout the day goes a long way.
Around the house... evidence of a birthday celebration in the form of a birthday banner and balloon.
I am pondering... my gifts. What are my talents, areas of expertise or strengths? And, how can I use them to make a difference?
A favorite quote for today... "God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars." ~Martin Luther
One of my favorite things... Andes Crème Menthe, Yum!
A few plans for the rest of the week: library day, continue decorating for fall, AWANA, Royal Rangers, small group, nature journal, play outside and hopefully do some shopping for clothes if I can get motivated.
A peek into my day...
Playing in the rain.
